Reputed gang leader Christopher Linton, more popularly known as 'Dog Paw', is nursing wounds after reportedly being beaten by security personnel at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre.
His attorney Dianne Jobson says the incident happened last Wednesday while he was in his cell.
Jobson says Linton had complained to prison authorities about a broken pipe in his cell.
She further said security personnel turned up to investigate.
According to her, following an exchange between Linton and the security personnel he was handcuffed and beaten.
The reputed gang leader reportedly received a cut to his hand.
The attorney says she has since reported the matter to Independent Commission of Investigation and the Jamaica Defense Force.
Meanwhile, contacted by our news centre this morning, Commissioner of Correction Lieutenant Colonel, Sean Prendergast said he was unaware of the incident.
But he said he will make checks with his personnel regarding the matter.
Linton is awaiting sentencing in the Gun Court.
He was convicted last month in relation illegal possession of firearm and shooting with intent charges.
Linton along with two other men are awaiting trial in the Home Circuit Court in relation to an attack in Bedward Gardens, St. Andrew in December 2010.
In that incident, a six-year-old boy, his 31-year-old mother and a 49-year-old taxi operator were murdered.
