Intoxicated 90s 'Gangster' With AK-47 Rifle in Flanker Killed; Gun Stolen

The St James police are yet to make a breakthrough with their probe into Monday night's killing of a rifle-slinging, drunken man who was shot and dispossessed of the high-powered weapon in the inner-city community of Flanker in Montego Bay.

The deceased has been identified as 51-year-old Courtney Clarke, also called 'Jesus', of a St James address.

The police said about 10:30 p.m., an intoxicated Clarke bragged among a group of persons in the Flanker community that his gun was bigger than those of a group of men from the same community with whom he had a dispute.

Clarke then left the scene and was reportedly returning with an AK-47 rifle, supposedly to prove his point, when he was intercepted and sprayed with bullets.

He died on the spot and the rifle was stolen.

Clarke has been described as a "longtime bad man from in the 1990s", who was said to have subsequently become hooked on alcohol.
