crime-scene-gun.jpgPolice are still probing the killing of Uriel 'Rooksie' James, the reputed leader of the Rose Town-based Discipline Gang who was shot dead on Wednesday.

Police sources say his body was discovered in a car in St Andrew in the vicinity of Dunrobin.

In February, James was shot and injured in the parking lot of the Spartan Health Club in New Kingston.

He was leaving the club shortly before 8 o'clock in the morning when two men dressed like construction workers opened fire. However, he was saved by a team of armed private security officers.

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

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

Four months earlier he was also freed of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition in connection with the 2011 robbery of a man.
