A Hanover man is being urged to turn himself into the police for his suspected involvement in a gun attack that saw a cop being injured by hand grenade in Alexandria, St Ann on Thursday night.

The wanted man has been identified as 26-year-old Sadan Mullings of Elgin Town in Hanover.

Mullings is also wanted in connection with several serious crimes and killings in Westmoreland and St Ann.

One of these crimes police believe is to be the quadruple murder committed in Bath, Westmoreland on Saturday night, March 18.

The police are urging Mullings to report to the nearest police station.

In the meantime, the police have identified an alleged gunman that was killed in Thursday night’s shootout.

The dead man is 21-year-old Nicoy Terleven of Elgin Town in Hanover. His body was found on Friday morning during a search by police.

Initial reports are that sometime after 9 p.m. Thursday, the police from the Mobile Reserve came upon a house in the Armadale area. 

 The police cordoned off the premises and later instructed the occupants to exit, but the alleged gunmen later threw hand grenades at the police in an attempt to escape. 

 The cops and the gunmen later engaged in a gun battle, the police report.

When the gun battle ceased, a detective sergeant was discovered to have received chest injuries, when one of the grenades exploded earlier.

Jamaica Defence Force soldiers were called in and one of the grenades were prevented from detonating.
