"I condemn today's (Thursday) shooting in Waterford, and I condemn any attack made on Blak Ryno," Kartel is quoted as saying. "Regardless of what transpires between the Portmore Empire and Blak Ryno, whether or not he is a part of the Empire, I will not tolerate any acts of violence against him. Anybody who does anything to Ryno has to answer to me."
