Two men were killed and two illegal weapons reportedly seized early this morning following an alleged shoot-out between police and gunmen in a section of Trench Town called Zimbabwe.

The police report that they seized a Taurus 9 millimetre firearm with seven rounds of ammunition and a CSR sporting rifle with 10 rounds of ammunition.

One of the dead men has been identified as Devon Campbell, otherwise called 'Chicken'.

The other man has not yet been identified.

The police say they came under sustained gunfire when they responded to explosions heard in Zimbabwe about 3 o'clock this morning.

The gunfire was returned and two men were later found suffering from gunshot wounds.

The men were taken to the Kingston Public Hospital where they were pronounced dead.
