The police and military are carrying out an operation in the commercial district of Spanish Town, St Catherine, as law enforcers continue to stem rising violence in the old capital. 

The security forces are said to be searching the area for gunmen and extortionists linked to the Clansmen and One Order gangs that are reportedly responsible for attacks in Spanish Town and its environs.

It's reported that shoppers and commuters are still going about their business, but some vendors are being removed from sidewalks and other areas in the town.
