News broke earlier that a businessman had been ambushed, shot and injured on Lady Musgrave Road and a video of the men being apprehended by a team of personnel from King Alarm has been making the rounds omn social media.

However, the police have now confirmed that it was the reputed gangster who was in fact shot and injured in the parking lot of the Spartan Health Club on Lady Musgrave Road.

Reports are that James was leaving the club shortly before 8 o'clock when two men dressed like construction workers opened fire.

One of the bullets struck James in his side.

The King Alarm team which was passing the location immediately responded and accosted the two gunmen and held them on them on the ground at gunpoint until the police arrived.

James is said to have several criminal cases before the courts.

In July 2015, he was freed of the 1999 murder of security guard Errol McGeachy in Rose Town, Kingston.
