Who was 'DOG PAW' And Why Was He Branded Jamaica's Most Wanted?

Christopher 'Dog Paw' Linton was once on Jamaica's Most Wanted List.. He was incarcerated but was freed after 10yrs.

According to his mother Claris Senior, Christopher Linton was a quiet, unassuming boy, who not only attended church regularly but got baptized at the age of 10.

'Dog Paw' was one of the most lively members of the choir at the Church of Jesus Christ United Faith Apostolic in Tavern, St Andrew.

He would attend church every day going up to the age of 10 as a child.

Linton was set free by the Court of Appeal of gun charges after being sentenced to 15 years in prison on March 15, 2013, in the High Court Division of the Gun Court.

Both men were accused of shooting at two police officers on Tavern Drive, St Andrew, in April 2010.

The police said that Linton, the alleged leader of the Dog Paw gang, was ruthless and drove fear into the hearts of residents in August Town and surrounding communities before his arrest.

Since his release, attempts have been made by gunmen to snatch his life, and Linton has always been saying that the police are after him.
On October 11, 2021, the police got reports that there was a car traveling around in Elletson Flats with armed men.
The police accosted them, the men opened fire at the police who returned fire. Dog Paw was shot and killed, his body was discovered in the car, and an illegal firearm was also retrieved.
