Best Answer

The person who shot and attempted to kill Bob Marley remains nameless to this day. It is believed that one of the culprits was killed by local people who discovered his involvement, the others are still unkown. The theft of marijuana is considered an unlikely motivation, as the gunmen's actions suggested only the desire to kill Bob. The assination attempt was believed to be politically motivated at the time, though whether it was from left of right wing was a matter of debate. Evidence since, including testimony of a former CIA agent, has suggested the CIA supplied weapons for this attack and may have been involved in motivating it. The CIA have, to date, refused to de-classify any of their files and information regarding Bob Marley or offered explanation as to why they have classified files on him.
