Pedestrians near the intersection of Harbour Street and King Street in downtown Kingston, Jamaica had to scamper for cover today after gunmen engaged a policeman in gunfire. It’s understood that the shooting occurred round about midday near the Burger King establishment while many people were heading for lunch.

Up to news time the police were still not able to provide any details on the incident. About 20 spent shells were counted in the vicinity of the Kings Street and Water Lane where the shooting occurred.

One alleged eyewitness said the gunmen shot one man.
