The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) says it has taken note of a video being circulated on social media purporting to capture a robbery in progress in the downtown Kingston area.

"Extensive checks with our Police Officers in the area have not revealed any such incident; neither has any such incident been reported to us at this time," the statement read.

The video was shared several times on social media with many speculating about the types of guns used.

A subsequent video posted to social media seemingly showed that the short clip was part of a music video shoot. 

Meanwhile, JCF is cautioning the public against producing and circulating such recreational video content, as it is likely to cause unnecessary fear and panic.
