The police returned fire, killing a man known only as  ‘Jeff’ or ‘Jev’ in the shootout.

The Den understands that a M16 rifle, known in the streets as a ‘Marshy’, was recovered from Jeff.

A 28-year-old man whose identity remains unknown was also injured in the incident.

The rifle recovered is said to be linked to a double murder which took place in the said community earlier this year in June.

Back in June 2021, two men were gunned down on Rousseau Crescent at around 5:00 pm.

A video from the incident was widely circulated on social media platforms showing of two male bodies being placed in the back of a police van.

The heads of the men were completely crushed, seemingly hit by a high powered weapon.
