The police say two persons were detained this morning following the fatal shooting of Jamaica's most wanted criminal, Marlon 'Duppy Film' Perry, in Port Morant, St Thomas.

According to Superintendent Beau Rigabe, head of the St Thomas Police, it's not clear at this time whether the two persons detained are connected to Perry.

But Rigabe said they were at the guest house where Perry engaged a police team in a shoot-out in which he was killed.

The identities of those detained are being withheld pending further investigations.

Perry was killed after he reportedly engaged the police in a shoot-out about 10:40 a.m.

He was pronounced dead at the Princess Margaret Hospital in the parish.

An AK-47 rifle and two 9mm pistols were reportedly recovered from the scene.

Perry is accused of carrying out several killings, including those of Corporal Kenneth Davis and Constable Craig Palmer on December 22, 2015, and also for a string of shootings, rapes and other crimes.
