The "My Life" singjay turned himself into police on Monday after being named a person of interest by Portmore police. Though some speculated that Shawn Storm's arrest was directly linked to the murder case against his long-time mentor, Vybz Kartel, no reasoning was offered by police regarding the nature of his arrest. He was transferred from a St. Catherine to the Constant Spring Police station earlier in the week.

Shawn Storm was freed after his lawyer, Michael Deans, filed a habeas corpus application in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Friday morning. According to Deans, he was on his way to court to address the matter when a senior superintendent informed him that the St. Andrew North did not have any interest in Shawn Storm. As a result, he was reportedly processed and released Friday afternoon. The Gaza singjay has yet to comment on the matter.

Shawn Storm's arrest came a week after Vybz Kartel was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in connection with the shooting death of Barrington "Bossie" Burton, a businessman/promoter of a St. Catherine address. Kartel is expected to return to court October 26th to answer those charges.
