The police are keeping a close watch on Cockburn Gardens, St Andrew, following the murder of a strongman from the community yesterday afternoon.

The man, who goes by the alias 'Ditty', was shot and killed at a house along Melrose Avenue at about 2:30 p.m.

When THE STAR visited the scene, a grey Honda Civic motor car, which investigators believe was driven to the location by the deceased, was parked at the entrance of the dwelling.

It is said that the police were called to his stronghold in Cockburn Gardens after residents reportedly heard gunfire.
