According to reports Lewis, was killed about 7:30 pm after he was peppered with bullets by unknown shooters while he sat in his car in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay.
Following the killing of the reputed gangster, reports are that gunmen, believed to be aligned with him went on a shooting spree in sections of the city.
Lewis reportedly fled the Island after he was fingered in a 2008 stabbing murder incident which took place at a nightclub in Montego Bay. He, was, however, deported to the island in May of this year when, upon arrival, he was immediately arrested on a warrant and taken into custody.
It’s alleged that Lewis was the reputed leader of a gang operating out of the innercity Canterbury community in Montego Bay.
A strong contingent of Jamaica Constabulary Force and Jamaica Defence Force members were deployed across Montego Bay, St James since the shooting last night.
