Peter Tosh, a founding member of the Wailers, a reggae group that helped to popularize the vibrant Jamaican music style internationally, was killed at his home Friday night by gunmen, “Stepping Razor” was 42 years old.

The Reggae star and Wilton (Doc) Brown, a maker of health food, died from their wounds en route to a hospital. Five others, including Mr. Tosh’s companion, Andrea Marlene Brown, were wounded.

Three armed men arrived on motorcycles at Tosh’s home in St. Andrew, a suburb of Kingston, entered the house at about 8:30 P.M. Friday, and shot the seven people present after they refused to give up their money, the radio station said.

A police detective said that Mr. Tosh had just returned from the United States and that the robbers apparently thought he had a large amount of cash with him. The detective added that the assailants had been tentatively identified, but that no arrests had been made.
