Dennis Brooks, Senior Communication Strategist for the Jamaica Constabulary Force
The police on Tuesday revealed that a gun which was taken from dancehall entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta has been linked to two murders.
Dennis Brooks, Senior Communication Strategist for the Jamaica Constabulary Force, told Radio Jamaica News the firearm is also connected to three shootings in Kingston and St. Andrew.
Mr. Brooks said a conclusive link between the gun and those crimes was made after the weapon was "subjected to various scientific tests."
Tommy Lee, whose real name is Leroy Russell, was last month sentenced to three years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm and two years for illegal possession of ammunition following plea negotiations with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
