Sections of the community of Kencot, near Lyndhurst Road in St. Andrew, were blanketed by a heavy police presence Tuesday morning.
Scores of policemen descended on the area and it is understood that some persons have been taken into custody.
However, the number is not yet clear.
Kencot was in the news late last week after a bus which was commandeered by gunmen came to a stop in the area.
A shoot-out between the gunmen and a passenger, who was a licensed firearm holder and then later the police, resulted in the deaths of five persons.
Two of the gunmen were among the dead.
