Veteran artist Desmond Ballentine aka Ninja Man, the self-proclaimed leader of the "One Umbrella Movement", which ironically seeks to promote peace in the said area, where the shooting took place, has indicated his decision to cooperate, and turn himself over to the cops (CCN), based on the much published warrant for his questioning and investigation, about the homicide of Ricardo Johnson aka "Ricky Trouper" (not the renowned selector/ DJ).
OutAroad.com was contact by his management team and the following statement was issued, on behalf of Mr. Ballentine, by Platinum Camp, C.E.O "Daddy Biggs" gave the statement last night that, "Ninja Man will be turning in himself tomorrow, accompanied by his attorney Ms. Norma Linton."
Based on the unofficial reports coming out of the CCN, it was reported that Mr. Ricardo Johnson was on Lower Mall Road, where he and some of his friends, became engulfed in an argument, which then lead to the men, leaving and returning later in a car. Event escalated to a point, weapons drawn and Mr. Johnson was shot, he was transported to the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH), where he later succumbed to his gunshot wounds. It’s still unsure to OutAroad.com, the reasons behind the unfolding of events, but stay tuned as we keep you abreast of the situation.
