The head of the Kingston Western Police Division says the police are probing leads that Friday’s killing of four people in Seaview Gardens has overseas links.

Senior Superintendent Delroy Hewitt says police intelligence indicates that Jamaicans living overseas are connected to the case.

He says the police have not yet enlisted the help of overseas law-enforcers but it has not been ruled out.

According to SSP Hewitt, the police have been receiving significant leads into the quadruple killing.

One man described as the principal suspect in the Seaview slayings was this morning shot dead by the police in a reported shoot-out.

SSP Hewitt says around 5:30 a.m. this morning, the police went to a property at 121 Orange Street in downtown Kingston to accost 19-year-old Davian Gordon.

He says there was a shoot out and Gordon also called ‘Diamond’ was shot dead by the police.

SSP Hewitt says a 9mm pistol was recovered from him.

The police commander says the police are seeking three other men suspected to have been involved in the shooting.

Yesterday, the police commissioner Owen Ellington toured the community and ordered that additional resources be deployed.

SSP Hewitt says those resources have since been deployed.
