Dancehall entertainer Bounty Killer and co-accused Calis Bowen have been freed of gun charges and other offences.


Bounty Killer, whose real name is Rodney Pryce, and Bowen who was a policeman at the time, were before the Gun Court on the charges of illegal possession of a firearm, assault at common law and unlawful wounding.

The police had reported that on September 27, 2007, Bounty Killer and a group of men assaulted an off-duty policeman along St Lucia Avenue in New Kingston.

Itís reported that the policeman had left a club and noticed a number of vehicles blocking a section of the roadway.

He reportedly signalled the men to clear the roadway when he was attacked.

Itís also reported that shots were fired at the off-duty policeman and that Bounty Killer pointed a gun at the policemanís face.

But in court today the Crown withdrew the allegations against Bounty Killer and the ex-cop after revealing that the evidence given by the policemen who was the complainant was contradicted by the statement of a senior police officer.
