The police are rejecting reports of gunfire on Maxfield Avenue or downtown Kingston up to midday.

A WhatsApp message has gone viral with a male voice warning people to avoid the area because of intense gunfire.

However, the police say there has been no such report.

"Residents are being asked to remain calm and refrain from sharing false information that is causing panic among citizens,"a police spokesperson said in a statement.
