Jamaica corporate area on official lockdown

Jamaican police on patrol

From 3 pm yesterday to 3 pm today (March 7) residents and businesses in the Corporate area community of Denham Town have had their comings and goings severely restricted.

That is because a 24-hour curfew was imposed in the in the volatile West Kingston area after six people, including a 13 year-old girl, were killed late Tuesday.

Director of Communications at the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Karl Angell, said the six were killed during a “running and intense gun battle involving the police and criminals”.

    Let our leaders take heed as if we do not clamp down on the drug problem now that could be Dominica very soon. A small island like Dominica it have people buying drugs by main road in broad day light. Same spot everyday and police cannot do nothing about it.
