The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has advised that murder charges are laid against four persons in connection with the murder of Keon McPherson, which occurred on August 15, 2021.
Those to be charged are Nicholas Hercules called ‘Bucko’, Brenna Nurse, Devon Harry, and Peter Lam.
McPherson, a 24-year-old from ‘D’ Field Sophia, was found dead around 04:00 hrs last Sunday in a yard at ‘C’ Field, Sophia with gunshot wounds to his body.
Police said an unknown woman telephoned the police command centre and reported that she saw a body lying motionless in a yard at ‘C’ Field, Sophia. It was reported that the man appeared to have blood on his skin.
Subsequent investigations by the police revealed that the man had a gunshot wound to his left side chest and another on his right hand; he was later identified as McPherson.
Police also discovered that McPherson was in a “triangular love affair” with a woman who resides in ‘C’ Field; that woman was reportedly intimate with another man who resides in Broad and Lombard Streets.
