The deejay has been in custody since March and has been denied bail. However, another application is to be made today.

According to reports, Johnson was sweeping his yard in the company of a friend at Mall Road, St Andrew, on the day in question, when a motor car with three men aboard drove up. An argument developed between Johnson’s friend and the men who left but later returned with guns blazing. Johnson was fatally shot in the incident.

Ninja Man turned himself in to the police while his son and the other accused were held during a police operation in St Ann.
