Was Mavado’s Son Set Up By Police? The Street Is Talking {VIDEO}

Mavado’s Teenage Son Charged With Murder & Conspiracy Mavado dancehall

Mavado son is facing multiple criminal charges including murder, but was he set up by police?

Since the shocking news broke on Friday night, the street has been talking and some people with inside knowledge of what’s going on are saying that cops are using the teenager as a pawn to get Mavado back in the island. The Gullyside singer is currently overseas touring and recording music. His attorney, Tamika Harris, told cops that the dancehall star has every intention to return to Jamaica and meet with them, but after seeing the way his son is being treated, it might be harder now to get Mavado back in the island.

A few dancehall commentators including Don Mafia and Dr. Love have published videos giving their insights into what’s happening. According to Dr. Love, the police are using Mavado’s teenage son to get back at him and to possibly lower him back to the island. The singer has not indicated to law enforcement when he will return, but charges are likely pending for him.

With his son charged with murder, it’s more likely now for Mavado to return to Jamaica to give his son some support. Our Gullyside sources told us that the dancehall singer has already hired an attorney for his son who will be with him in court on Monday. Still, these allegations beg the question, how can the police department charged him with such serious crime without having any hard evidence.
The 16-year-old, who is currently locked up at a juvenile detention center, was charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. These are all serious charges that carry a lengthy prison sentence if he is convicted. Mavado’s cousin Chase Cross was re-arrested and charged with assault for his involvement in the domestic dispute in Cassava Piece.
According to police, the teen was involved in the murder of Lorenza Thomas who was shot and chopped to death on Tuesday (June 5). Thomas’ house was set ablaze by his killers and his body was badly burned. Mavado’s son was also charged with arson which means cops believed he was at the scene when the murder took place.

Mavado’s 16-year-old son, Dantay Brooks, has been charged with murder.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force has confirmed with Urban Islandz in a statement that they have formally brought murder charges against Mavado's son. Brooks was charged for the murder of Lorenza Thomas, aka Israel or Chulups, who was shot and killed in Cassava Piece last week Tuesday (June 5). Law enforcement sources told us that Thomas’ murder is believed to be a reprisal killing for his alleged involvement in a shooting incident involving the dancehall singer, his son, and cousin Chase Cross.

Brooks was also charged with conspiracy to commit murder, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. The teenager was also charged with arson which means cops thinks he was present at the scene of Thomas’ murder last Tuesday. Mavado is currently overseas, but cops still have a warrant out for him to turn himself in. Earlier this week, the police force issued a final warning to the Gullyside singer to turn himself in or else they will seek assistance from their overseas law enforcement counterpart to have him extradited back to Jamaica.

Despite the warning, Mavado has not budged and remains in the United States. His attorney, Tamika Harris, says he is currently fulfilling his contractual obligations and will return to the island to meet with cops as soon as possible.

Mavado’s cousin, Chase Cross, has been charged with assault for his involvement in the domestic dispute that leads to the shooting incident in Cassava Piece. He is currently being held without bail and cops say they are investigating the incident to see if he has any involvement in Thomas’ murder.
Lorenza Thomas was shot, chopped and his body burned by armed men who kicked in the door to his home in Cassava Piece just three days after Mavado was shot at. Cops insist that his death is a reprisal for the shooting and they have linked the dancehall singjay’s son to the murder. It’s unclear if Mavado will be charged in connection to the incident, but cops say they want to interview him and are prepared to take measures to bring him back to Jamaica. One of the shooting suspects is currently in police custody.
Mavado was spotted in the studio this week with Vybz Kartel producer Rvssian and rapper King Kosa. The three entertainers are currently working on a collaboration

Mavado’s cousin Chase Cross was arrested again on Monday and slapped with charges relating to the shooting incident earlier this month.

Chase Cross, who is an up-and-coming dancehall artist, was taken into custody on Monday. Law enforcement sources confirmed with Urban Islandz that he was charged with assaulting the same man that Mavado got into a fight with in Cassava Piece that lead to the shooting. We’re told that Chase Cross was involved in the initial confrontation between Mavado and his alleged shooter who is now in custody.

This also means that Mavado, whose real name is David Brooks, could be charged with assault, but for now, cops say they just want to question the singer about some recent violence in the community. There is at least one reprisal killing in the area. Last week, a group of men kicked in a door to the home of Lorenza Thomas in a brutal attack. Thomas was shot, chopped and his body light on fire and cops are investigating his killing as a reprisal for the Mavado shooting incident.

Mavado’s 17-year-old son is still in police custody and cops are saying that they want to question him more about what took place in Cassava Piece. The dancehall singjay is currently overseas, but has indicated through his attorney that he will return to the island as soon as possible and meet with cops.
