The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) today revealed via a statement that a St. James based gunman and member of the G-City Gang, died as a result of injuries he received during a shooting incident with the Police in Red Ground Square, Old Harbour, St. Catherine this morning.

A Glock 40 Pistol with 12 rounds of ammunition was also taken from him according to the JCF.

He has been identified as Paul Jay Lewis otherwise called ‘Jay’ of Cornwall Court, Montego Bay, St. James.

Reports are that about 6:30 a.m., a team of officers went to apprehend Lewis, who confronted the police with the Glock 40 Pistol, during which he was shot and injured. The firearm was taken from him and he was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Lewis and members of the G-City gang recently threatened to kill members of the security forces following the fatal shooting of the gang leader in Salt Spring in September. He is a known violence producer in St. James and was the target of several police operations; he however, eluded them and was displaced to Old Harbour.

Since the launch of the Zones of Special Operations in St. James, criminals are leaving the area to other areas outside of the parish and as such the security forces have implemented a displacement strategy to capture these men.
