Published:Saturday | August 3, 2013 | 12:45 PM

A curfew is now in effect in the Kingston Western community of Denham Town.



It began at 6 p.m. yesterday and will end at 6 p.m. tomorrow.



The curfew follows a spike in the number of gang-related shootings in Denham Town which have so far left an 11-year-old girl and a businessman dead.



Several other people have been injured in the shootings.



The police say people within the boundaries of the curfew are required to remain within their premises unless otherwise authorised in writing by the ground commander.
