Wednesday, November 30, 2011

According to MTV NEWS:

Dancehall star Vybz Kartel has reportedly broken out of prison in his native Jamaica after holding an officer at gunpoint.

Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, allegedly started a riot at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre, where he was being held whilst under investigation over his possible involvement in up to seven murders.

It is reported that Kartel and several other prisoners managed to take control of the prison shortly after 1am local time this morning (30/11/11), taking clothes and keys from guards before escaping in a prison maintenance pickup truck at approximately 1.45am.

One police officer is thought to have died of a heart attack during the escape with at least twelve others injured, including two who were shot with guns apparently smuggled into the prison ahead of the raid.

**Update 11/30/11 @ 8am: Caribbean Lifestyle Media follow up with the Jamaican Office of the Commissioner of Police Office.  The Jamaican Office of the Commissioner of Police reported that the Vybz Kartel story reported in MTV NEWS is just rumor and stated that they would be the first to know and received no such reports that Vybz Kartel escaped.
