The Kingston Western Police are keeping a close watch on sections of Rema in Trench Town following Tuesday night's killing of an alleged area leader.
Marcus Bailey, 36, otherwise called "Toddy" was shot dead by gunmen in his community.
About 9 o'clock, Bailey was among a group of persons when gunmen approached and shot him several times.
Bailey died at the scene.
Investigators say Bailey, who was the leader for an area known as 'Buckas', was recently released by the court on gun related charges.
