The Jamaican government is in a state of emergency as police in the country battle with local drug gangs.
Security forces are looking for alleged drug kingpin Christopher "Dudus" Coke, who is facing extradition to the U.S.
Local gangs are protecting the slums where he is thought to be living.
Masked gunmen allied with Coke recently torched a police station and are roaming the streets with high-powered rifles, shooting at police.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force said two officers have been killed in the fights and six others were injured.
The U.S. has issued a travel warning for the Jamaican capital.
