Dancehall entertainer, Mavado, is still at large almost 24-hours after the Police called for him to turn himself into their Constant Spring station.

The Police had asked Mavado to report to them by midday today. It’s understood that arrangements are being made for him to report to the Police with his attorney, Peter Champaigne.

The Police say Mavado is a person of interest. According to the Police, he’s to be questioned about an investigation.

The Police also want to question the deejay about violence in Cassava Piece.

Mavado is said to be in the United States. He left the island shortly after gunmen fired shots at him in Cassava Piece on Saturday.

The Entertainer’s brother is among those in custody.
