Frankfield-based Water Works Gang responsible for upsurge in violence - Police

Published:Monday | August 17, 2015 | 8:59 PM

The Clarendon Police say the Water Works Gang is responsible for the recent upsurge in gun violence gripping the small community of Frankfield in the parish. 

Investigators today spent several hours at a scene in Water Works where a man was murdered. 

That incident follows Saturday night's killing of 41-year-old Clive Walker, a contractor from Railway Road also in Frankfield. 

One person is in custody in relation to that shooting. 

Head of the Clarendon Police Division, Senior Superintendent, Maurice Robinson, says the evidence so far does not suggest that today's shooting was an act of reprisal. 

Meanwhile, he says the shootings are related to an ongoing gang feud that has claimed more than five lives in the past year. 

SSP Robinson says despite a shortage of personnel, the police have carried out a series of operations that have resulted in a number of arrests. 

He is calling for residents of Frankfield to come forward with information on criminal activities.

Meanwhile, the head of the Clarendon Police says the alleged leader of the Water Works Gang, 23-year-old Demar Lee otherwise called 'Jet Lee' is still being sought. 

He was listed as wanted in March following the shooting death of traffic warden, Natalie Gayle, while on duty at the Kilsyth Primary and Infant School.
