Two Illegal Firearms Seized, Two Fatally Shot in Dylight Gunfight

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) can confirm that two illegal firearms were seized, two gunmen were shot and killed, while another has been taken into custody at the intersection of Hope Road and Trafalgar Road in St. Andrew shortly after midday.

The three men were reportedly travelling in white Toyota Axio motor car that is suspected to have been involved in the shooting death of a man in Swallowfield, St. Andrew earlier today.

The murder of the man was reported to the Police Emergency Communication Centre, which then used the Jamaica Eye Technology to swiftly mobilize members of the Metropolitan Quick Response Team. The motor vehicle was intercepted at the intersection and while the police sought to apprehend them, the suspects engaged the Police team in a firefight.

Investigations into today’s incidents are in their early phases and more information will be shared with the public at an appropriate time.
