Nine detainees this morning escaped from the Denham Town police lock-up in west Kingston.

The Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force has confirmed the incident, but says it has very little information at this time.

However, law enforcement sources report that the detainees escaped from the Denham Town lock-up shortly before daybreak.

The Gleaner understands that four of the men are wanted for gun-related crimes including murder.

A team is now in the West Kingston Police Division probing the incident.
