Guns seized in West Kingston linked to several murders
The police high command has revealed that six illegal firearms that were taken from members of the west Kingston-based Four Storey Gang have been linked to several murders committed in the Corporate Area.
Speaking at the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s quarterly press conference, Deputy Commissioner of Police Carl Williams says the firearms were used in the murders of retired Senior Superintendent Tony Hewitt and retired Deputy Superintendent Denzil Boyd.
Three of the firearms were reportedly seized after Fitzroy Gaynor, Demar Cameron and Troy Vassell, who are believed to be aligned to the Four Story Gang, were killed in separate confrontations with the police in the west Kingston area.
Deputy Commissioner Williams says the other firearms were taken from Shane Coke, another reputed member of the Four Storey Gang.
He says investigations have revealed that the firearms were also used in the shooting of a police corporal in Three Views Gardens, in St Andrew in February and the slaying of a man at the Causeway fishing village in February.
