TRELAWNY, Jamaica — Adrian Walker, alias 'Lippy', the alleged leader of the Ski Mask gang operating out of Bunker's Hill, Trelawny, and two of his cronies, were shot dead during an alleged shootout with the police in the Friendship district of the parish on Monday.

Another of the alleged gangsters has been identified as Robert Miller, alias 'Ghost', while the name of the other could not be ascertained by OBSERVER ONLINE.

Information is sketchy, but residents say they heard a barrage of gunshots in a section of the community at about 5:15 pm, as the gunmen and members of the security force traded bullets.

Two firearms and a number of assorted bullets were reportedly recovered by the police at the scene of the shooting.
Walker and his cronies have been on the police's radar for quite sometime.

Last month, the Trelawny police urged Walker and other members of the gang to turn themselves in, after they reportedly engaged the police in a shootout in Bunker's Hill.

The police say Walker was also wanted in connection with the murder of 63-year-old Bunker's Hill resident Oliver Johnson, who was shot and chopped to death during an altercation with the alleged gangster last Wednesday in the community.

The Ski Mask gang, formerly based in St James, was crippled last year March, when six of its members were killed during an alleged shootout with members of the security forces in Goodwill, near the St James/ Trelawny border.

Since then, the police say, the remnants of the gang have taken root in the once peaceful Bunker's Hill community.
