This news comes a week after Shawn's mentor and Empire leader, Vybz Kartel was slapped with murder charges relating to the shooting death of St. Catherine based businessman/promoter, Barrington "Bossie" Burton. Additionally, it was rumored last Thursday that fellow Kartel protégé’, Popcaan was leaving the Gaza group after it was announced that the Shocking Vibes label would take bookings on his behalf.

Now, news has emerged that Shawn Storm has been taken in by law enforcement after being named as a person of interest. Shawn Storm was turned in to the Portmore police on Monday morning by his attorney, Michael Deans who explained that the singjay was facing questioning. However, no details have emerged as to what exactly the Portmore Empire artiste is being questioned for or why he's been named by a person of interest. According to Deans, Shawn Storm is said to be fully co-operating with the authorities and denies any involvement in illegal activity.

Shawn Storm is known for singles such as "My Life," "Money Today," and "Whine Up Yuh Body."

Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel faces a Thursday morning hearing in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates Court where he's expected to answer to the charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm relating to the aforementioned shooting incident. He plead not guilty to a ganja possession charge on Friday after being slapped with the charge eight days prior after being arrested at a small New Kingston Hotel by members of the Flying Squad.
