Accused Klansman Gang leader Andre “Blackman” Bryan has been found guilty of enabling the murder of a deported man on Jones Avenue in Spanish Town, St. Catherine, in 2018.
Bryan and two of his co-accused, Michael Whitely and Brian Morris, were found guilty on Thursday in the Supreme Court by Chief Justice Bryan Sykes. The prosecution accused the alleged gang leader of ordering the hit.
Count 15 of the 25-count indictment charged Whitely, Morris, Bryan, and a third defendant, Jahzeel Blake, with facilitating the commission of an applicable offence by a criminal organization. Following his arrest and charge, Blake was dropped from that count following a successful non-case submission.
Bryan was also found guilty of engineering the 2017 murder of Patrick “Outlaw” Tulloch in Lauriston, St. Catherine. Tareek “CJ” James, Bryan’s reported bodyguard and hitman, was also found guilty of Tulloch’s death.
Bryan, Blake, James, and co-accused Andre Golding, were declared not guilty of the murder of a bus driver in the Spanish Town bus park in 2017. Golding and his fellow defendants, Chevroy Evans and Marco Miller were found not guilty of enabling the murder of another bus driver, who was also killed in 2017 in the bus park.
