A young man confirmed to Shamar Stewart of Allman Town, Kingston 4 was reportedly engaged in a shoot-out with the police. The incident took place on Friday, August 26 at Marcus Garvey Drive, Kingston 14, which left the 21 year old mechanic, otherwise known as ‘Linjay’, dead.

According to police reports, the gun war took place at around 4:15 P.M and a .38 revolver including three .38 cartridges were taken after its conclusion.

A release from the Corporate Communication Unit by the police stated that the incident was reported to the Professional Standards Oversight Bureau (IPROB) and The Inspectorate as well as the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).

However, various social media users claim that the interpretation by the authorities of the situation warrants further investigation after a video recording of the incident was posted online.
