The vehicle believed to be involved in the incident which led to the killing of 17-year-old Khajeel Mais last Friday night, was seized in a raid by the police at the home of a Kingston businessman a few hours ago.
The raid took place between 10:30pm and 12:30am in Plantation Heights, upper St. Andrew, where the police seized two of four luxury SUV vehicles they found at the home. Those seized are a red BMW X6 with registration numbers – 6751FW and a blue BMW X6 registered 1786FX.
The covert operation was led by the Major Investigation Task Force of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, the team that has been leading the investigating into the murder which took place last Friday night on Fairfax Avenue, in Havendale.
It’s reported that Mais, a student of Kingston College, was travelling in a taxi along Fairfax Avenue in Havendale en route to a fête at his former school, Meadowbrook High, when the cab in which he was traveling in bumped into a black or blue BMW X5.
The driver of the X5 reportedly became angry and retaliated by blocking the road and firing wildly into the taxi. When the taxi driver realised he was under attack, he is said to have turned his vehicle around and headed in the opposite direction.
The driver of the luxury SUV then reportedly shot out his back window, hitting young Mais in the head.
Mais later died at the Kingston Public Hospital.
The taxi driver escaped injury.
From all indications the police now believe it was an X6 and not an X5 that was involved in the incident.
