The Police High Command is reporting that its efforts to stem the upsurge in violence in west Kingston are beginning to bear fruits.

This follows the arrest of a west Kingston gang member who was wanted for murder and the seizure of three illegal firearms and nearly 50 rounds of ammunition.

The wanted man has been identified as Richard ‘Shawn’ Lyons, who was wanted in connection with the shooting death of Lamar Nelson in Craig Town last year.

The Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) says Lyons will be interviewed in the presence of his lawyers with a view of laying charges shortly.

The police have also sought to assure the residents of west Kingston that they will continue with their operations in various communities in a bid to arrest the violence that has been plaguing the area.
