The two men who were listed as persons of interest yesterday by the St Andrew Police North Division in relation to the death of Senior Superintendent of Police Anthony Hewitt have turned themselves in.
Jermaine ‘Duppy Bat’ Smith and Richard ‘Red Head’ Francis both of Donmair Avenue addresses were tagged as persons of interest following investigation into the fatal shooting of the retired SSP.
Information reaching our news team is that both men reportedly turn themselves over to the Constant Spring police in the company of their attorney Christian Tavares-Finson.
A third suspect Jomo Mcleod is also said to be in custody in relation to the murder.
The police in a release said the men will be questioned.
Ironically, the aliases, ‘Duppy Bat’ and ‘Red Head’ have been frequent pop ups on the police radar, and various persons of interest list for the division since 2010.
Most recently, Smith and Francis were also implicated in the Red Hills Road gang feud which claimed the lives of three people during this past summer.
Smith was reportedly taken into custody by the police, processed in relation to those allegations, and then released.
