Fallen ‘Nut Man’ at corner from age 15
A familiar sight along Pine Plantation Road, St Michael, is no more.
Randy “Iran” Selman (left), also known as the “Nut Man”, who had been selling nuts at the junction of Pine Hill and Pine Plantation Road for decades, was shot to death Wednesday night.
He had become a feature at that spot; there is even a marker for him on Google Maps.
The 38-year-old entrepreneur and father of two was relaxing outside his home at Golden Rock, The Pine, St Michael, on Wednesday night when tragedy struck.
Police said they received the call about the shooting incident about 8:37 p.m.
The report stated shots were fired and a number of men were seen running away from the scene afterwards. Selman was later discovered with a head injury and he was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) by car for medical attention, but was later pronounced dead while at the QEH. (CA)
