On November 30, six prisoners escaped from the Freeport lock up.

Two have been recaptured, while a third was killed in a shoot out with the police last week.

The other men on the run are Shaniel Luton, who’s been convicted on two counts of murder.

Kelvin Hodge, who’s charged with four counts of murder and Marcus Robinson, who’s charged for illegal possession of firearm.

Meanwhile, SSP McGregor says no entertainment activities will be allowed in the Cornwall Courts community in St.James over the Christmas period, following the shooting of six persons, one fatally on Tobago Avenue, Mount Salem in the parish on Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, 18 year old Shavorn Chambers, was killed on Tobago Avenue.

Chambers and five other persons were victims of a drive by shooting.

The Police have linked the incident to a case of kidnapping and missing illegal guns.

SSP McGregor says the police will be installing a police post in the area next week.
