KINGSTON — Nineteen-year-old Davian Gordon, alleged to be the mastermind behind Saturday’s shooting death of four men in Seaview Gardens, St. Andrew, was shot dead by the police in a shootout in downtown Kingston Tuesday morning.
Police said the confrontation with Gordon, otherwise known as ‘Diamond’, happened at about 5:30. A Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol was allegedly taken from his body.
Twenty-eight-year-old Dwight Robinson; Jerome Anthony Gooden, 33; Ricardo Lawes, 28; and Omar Smith, 32, were peppered with bullets as they played cards on White Sea Drive, in a section of Phase Two known as Marley Bottom. Another man and a woman were wounded in the attack. There were speculations that the killings might have been reprisal for the murder of a man last month. Four persons were taken into custody in the aftermath and on Sunday the police said they were pursuing other suspects but did not give their identities.
Meanwhile, the police said yesterday morning’s incident was reported to the Independent Commission of Investigations. (Observer)
