The man who has been identified as Fitzroy Coore otherwise called ‘OJ’ was gunned down during an operation by the security forces in May Day, Manchester last evening.
The Police say a firearm was seized.
The 26-year-old was wanted for murder and wounding with intent.
Meanwhile, the Police say they’ve intensified their presence in West Kingston and have published a list of wanted persons as well as persons of interest.
