A man was shot and injured this morning by police personnel who had gone to execute a warrant on him in the  Dean’s Lane area of Montego Bay, St James.

The man allegedly pulled a firearm on the police who responded.

The injured man was taken to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where he was admitted.

The police say a gun was found on the scene.

The shooting led to the closure of Barnett Street, the main access point for downtown Montego Bay.

CORRECTION: An earlier report stated that another murder was committed in Montego Bay this morning, this information was, however, incorrect as no one was killed.
