Head of operations for the Old Harbour Police Division Insp. Carey Duncan says the recent flare-up of shootings in the Burke Road area which saw three people being killed is now under control.

The crime fighter told Old Harbour News in a recent interview that the arrest of suspected gang leader Hugh Robinson popularly called ‘Bobby Lexus’ was also important among several initiatives it implemented in the last few weeks to curtail the bloodletting which has seen a numbers of persons being shot and injured.

Robinson, who also goes by the name ‘Calvin Cameron’ the police says, is involved in a longstanding feud with rival and also suspected gang leader John Roofe Jnr alias ‘Roofy 2’.

Inspector Duncan says with assistance from the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation (C-TOC) unit its strategies are bearing the desired results, having also implemented a 24-hour police patrol in the Burke Road space.

He told Old Harbour News that there has been a noticeably lull in shootings as since the police stepped up its stop and search and public order initiatives.

And despite the recent shooting deaths, the inspector noted that murders committed in the division this year so far stands at 14, which is one less than the 2015 corresponding period.
