From our organic street Reporters who captured the scene as it occurred in the New Kingston Area where two men went to Spartan Gym on Lady Musgrave Road and opened fire hitting Uriel James, the leader of the reputed Rose Town-based Discipline Gang as he was about to enter the gym compound about 7:50 am.
The assailants sprayed his vehicle with bullets.
In the videos, the assailants are seen lying on the ground while security officers took control of the scene. Two firearms were recovered and handed over to the Police.
More and more these scenes are playing out across the country as criminals ride up on motorcycles or in motor cars and open fire killing people and simply disappearing without consequence. Regardless of what we think about the victim in this regard, the act in itself is reprehensible and should not be tolerated.
In the meantime, the Government and the criminal rights lobby are fully engaged in rendering the police department less effective.
Kudos to King Alarm officers who did a great job hanging onto the two would-be murderers until the Police arrived and took them into custody.
On an observation sidenote.
The Uniform of King Alarms security officers is pretty impressive. As a proponent of changing the silly uniform of the police, I wonder what it would take for our police officers to have the uniform like those worn by King Alam security guards?
