The St James Police say they will not be issuing permits for dances in areas of the parish where a murder or shooting has occurred within three weeks before the application date.

Head of the St James Division Superintendent Derrick Champagnie says a number of threats have been made against persons with the intent to carry out reprisal killings at events in the parish.

Superintendent Champagnie says as a result, the decision was taken to protect lives.

Meanwhile, the St James Police have released the names of several persons of interest.

They are Damaine Samuels Damage, otherwise called 'Dam', Micheal Campbell Townist, otherwise called 'Andrew', Robert Calvert, also known as 'Ziggy' and Daniel Whitaker, or ‘Dan Dan’, from Montego Hills.

The police are looking for Toussaint Lewis Shawn, also known as 'Dadada' and Owayne Clarke, or ‘Puss Head’, both from Mount Salem.

The police are also seeking the public's help in locating Junior Edwards, otherwise called 'Coachie' and Anthony Gibbs or Webster from Adelphi, Marvin Lewis, or 'Chin' of Flanker and Brent Morgan, otherwise called 'Size Ten' from Green Pond.

All of the men listed are from the parish of St James.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of these individuals is being asked to contact the Montego Bay Police at 953-6191, Police 119 emergency number, Crime Stop at 311 or the nearest Police Station.
