Bahamas: HIGH ALERT: COP says police making “progress” with Jerome Avenue massacre

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — More than a week after six men were shot dead and a woman and a two-year-old child were injured in a mass shooting on Jerome Avenue, Commissioner of Police Paul Rolle said police are “making progress” with its investigation and continue to remain on “high alert” while seeking out those responsible.

“We are making progress with our investigations into the latest homicides at Chesapeake Road,” Rolle told Eyewitness News.

“I wish to thank those persons who have assisted us so far in providing information in this case.

“I wish to make a further appeal to anyone who may have information, however small it may be, to provide it to us, so that we may bring the perpetrators to justice.”

The six men were killed just two hours after their release from police custody.

Four men, two of whom were armed with high-powered weapons and the other two with firearms, exited a white Kia Jeep and opened fire on the Honda the men were in at the intersection.

Among those killed were Delano Smith, 34, of Kemp Road; Kendal Lord, 31, of Whites Addition; Renardo Bastian, 31; Maurice Pinder, 21; Darrnario Saunders, 27; and Travis Latario, 26.
