The police high command is attributing the recently launched zones of special operation (ZOSO) for locating and subsequent killing of G-City gangster Paul Lewis.

Lewis, also known as ‘Jay’, was this morning killed by the police during a shootout in the community of Red Ground, located four miles north of Old Harbour town centre.

“Lewis and members of the G-City gang recently threatened to kill members of the security forces following the fatal shooting of the gang leader in Salt Spring in September. He is a known violence producer in St. James and was the target of several police operations; he however, eluded them and was displaced to Old Harbour,” the police said in a statement issued by the Constabulary Communications Unit.

“Since the launch of the Zones of Special Operations in St. James, criminals are leaving the area to other areas outside of the parish and as such the security forces have implemented a displacement strategy to capture these men.”

Old Harbour News understands that Lewis, who is of a Cornwall Court, Montego Bay, St James address, was staying at a premises belonging to his father. His mother is said to live in St James.

The police said, during an intelligence led operation, a team of officers went to the premises to apprehend Lewis, who open fire at them. The fire was returned and Lewis was shot and later succumbed to his injuries.

A Glock 40 Pistol with 12 rounds of ammunition was also taken from him.
