The St Catherine South police who have confirmed taking the man into custody on suspicion of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, after he was handed over to them, say they are conducting further investigations into the matter, and have declined to release his identity.

The police said when checked, the weapon was loaded with 13 rounds of 9mm cartridges. The incident did not stop the activities at the club, THE STAR learnt, as immediately after the lawmen left with the suspect, the show continued as if nothing had happened.
