Cops seek Tommy Lee for questioning

Up to press time, controversial dancehall deejay Tommy Lee Sparta had not turned up at the Elleston Road Police Station in Kingston where he is listed as a person of interest in relation to a shooting incident in that division.

According to the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s information arm, the Corporate Communication Unit, on Thursday, detectives in the Eastern Kingston Division indicated the artiste is wanted for questioning in relation to a shooting on Saunders Avenue. He is being asked to turn up before or on Monday, July 4.

Several efforts to speak with the artiste’s attorney, Ernest Smith, were unsuccessful.

This is not the first time the artiste’s name is being featured by the police.

Last year, he was barred from performing on Reggae Sumfest and in the Area One Division by the police. Area One comprises St James, Trelawny, Westmoreland and Hanover. At the time, Senior Superintendent Steve McGregor said Tommy Lee Sparta’s name was linked to violence in Flankers and surrounding communities.
He is known for songs like Dream, Psycho, and Nuh Make Me Feel So.
