Police: Data entry error caused gun mix-up with Patrick Powell, cop

Former Kingston College student, Khajeel Mais who was shot to death in a taxi five years ago.



THE Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is now saying that earlier information by the Firearm Licensing Authority, that two licences were issued for the same firearm to Patrick Powell and Inspector Patricia Powell, was due to a data entry error.

Patrick Powell was recently acquitted of the 2011 murder of 17-year-old schoolboy Khajeel Mais in what is popularly known as the X6 murder case.

“Concerning reports that two licences were issued for the same Walther 9mm pistol, the JCF is now satisfied, based on thorough investigations, that a data entry error, due to similar names, was responsible for this development,” the JCF said in a news release yesterday.

The JCF said Inspector Patricia Powell was granted a licence in respect of a Walther 9mm pistol in the Manchester Division in 2004, and has been the sole person licensed to carry that weapon.
