A massive security operation is now underway in Western Kingston following the rescue of members of a police team who were pinned down as heavily armed men rained bullets in a fierce fire-fight yesterday. According to the police, earlier Wednesday evening a police team was in the area when a group of men was seen attempting to leave one community to go to another. The men were intercepted by the police team and that's when they reportedly opened fire on the cops. The police reportedly took evasive action but were pinned down in hail of bullets from the gunmen for some time. Additional police and military personnel were subsequently deployed to the area to assist the team that was trapped and a large-scale operation is now underway.
