Dancehall star Elephant Man is lucky to not have lost one of his children, thanks to the mother of one of his sons. Shamar Grant aka Ratty was shot multiple times as the 38 year old laid in bed with her 13-year-old son at their home in Cedar Valley Road in St Andrew.
Neighbors said that the Ratty had a strange feeling that something was going to happen to her just a day before her death.
