Police have raided the compound of alleged drug kingpin Christopher “Dudus” Coke in Kingston, reports CNN. Twenty-seven people have been killed and 31 injured as police and residents battle. Witnesses say the shooting has gradually intensified since Monday as police attempt to remove Dudus from his stronghold in Tivoli Gardens where he has barricaded himself. Soldiers in full combat gear went door-to-door looking for Coke. At least 211 people have been arrested since the violence began this past weekend.
