Murder count hits 117

Tragedy paid another visit on an inner city community after a shooting left a young man dead Tuesday evening. His killer on the loose and detectives with its 117th homicide investigation to solve.


The good news is that they are following significant leads into the incident.


According to Chief Superintendent Solomon Cash the victim was in the area of Florida Court around 8:00 Tuesday night when two men approached him, opened fire and shot him multiple times, killing him on the spot.


Investigators met the victim’s lifeless body in the yard of a nearby home.


ASP Cash admits he and his team are at this point unclear of a motive, but the two males assisting with investigations may bring more clarity.


That community’s Member of Parliament (MP) Glennys Hannah Martin yesterday spoke with The Bahama Journal following this latest murder stating that MPs must get back to the community.


“It happened to be someone that I watched grow up form a little boy , I knew his mother very well and it was to me just tremendously heartbreaking, because it part of a larger heartbreak that’s happening in our country,” she said.


“There’s so many young men in particular being killed on our streets, the value of life is just being diminished and we have to be careful that we do not become accustomed to the sort of carnage that’ shaping on our streets.”
