Shaquille Demarion Bush

(CNS) UPDATED NOON: A man found with a gunshot wound at about 5:30pm Tuesday evening in West Bay is dead and police have now confirmed that they have launched a murder inquiry. Shaquille Demarion Bush (24) was found in Daisy Lane in the Logwoods area of the district by officers after a call was made about shots being fired.

The paramedics who attended the scene began CPR on the victim but police now say that he displayed no signs of life when they arrived and the medics were unable to revive him, pronouncing him dead at the scene.

While postings on social media indicate that the first murder of 2019 was gang-related, police have not yet offered any motive and no one has been arrested.

The RCIPS said the shooting happened around dusk between 5pm and 5:30pm. Although the area was said to have been dimly lit at the time, with just natural light, detectives believe there may have been people in the area who have information about what happened and could assist the investigation.

Officers are urging people with information to call Detective Inspector Collins Oremule at 936-8746. Anonymous tips can be provided directly to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or via the website.

Cayman Crime Stoppers is facilitating a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the commission of this murder. Tips can be submitted anonymously via the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online.

    It’s a shame that the only way West Bayers can be persuaded to do their public duty is to pay them $50,000.

    Whatever the reason for this young laddie’s demise, 24 is no age at all. He had barely began to live. Tragic waste of life again on this island.

    The term “gangs” gives these idiots way too much credit – they wouldn’t last 5 minutes in somewhere like Grimsby or Hull. They’re essentially just morons, who have played Grand Theft Auto too often as kids and believe that is normal behaviour in society. Get a life, get a job and get a wash you pathetic idiots.

        Not English accents – Eastern European ones! And it’s not just those two places in the UK either. Better still put them out on the streets of Manchester – there are areas there the police won’t patrol.

        all fun and games, Cayman is nothing compare to the uk or any country.

        just a bunch of people who wants to play badman and spit on the community.

        people in cayman chose that type of life, its always a choice.

        its sad though, if only people could put down the guns and actually pick up a book or have the ambition to work lol. – Caymanian Youth

          They didn’t say it’s okay. Just to can the drama, but looks like that was incentive for you to turn it up to 11. Take this one away and we have zero … 10 times the murder rate of Singapore, SMH.

          Please. Anon at 10:43’s comment is totally racist. The “ commonality” in their “Christian names”? Is it “Shaquille” or “Demarion” that you are referring to? You are implying that much can be gathered by the names that the grieving parents gave their child, i.e., names like “Shaquille” and “Demarion” speak to the race and or class of the person, or more specifically the lack of class.

          To draw negative conclusions about a person based solely on that person’s name, is idiotic at best, or just plain racist, particularly because you’ve concluded that the person has a “black” name.
          Own your shite dude.

    This has been going on for way too long. They need to seal the whole area off then send RCIPS, and any other outside agencies who can give them assistance, in mob-handed going door-to-door with sniffer dogs to find all the drugs and weapons.

    Sad that they choose the lifestyle of mayhem; chaos & ultimately untimely deaths!
    And parents & grandparents give them shelter; food & allow them free reign to be idle all day … Well the devil finds work for those idle hands .. all the time!

          Have fun sitting in traffic, while I enjoy the benefits of the extra equity my West Bay property is gaining. Not to mention what I get in monthly rent! Most Caymanians shared the same sentiments, and look now. Caymanians cannot afford a home in Windsor Park, much less WB. So keep that mentality, while foreign investors buy and renovate the properties in the district and sell it back to you at premium. Ignorance is bliss!
