… Broad Street execution
Even as relatives are trying to come to grips with the execution-style killing of Mark Caesar also known as “Li’l Mark”, police investigators are looking at several angles as to what might have triggered the shooting.
One theory is that the shooting is in some way linked to the shooting at Cummings Lodge in which five persons, including a three-year-old boy, were killed. Commissioner Henry Greene, at a press conference, had stated that the Cummings Lodge killings were drug related.
Steve Jupiter, also known as “Steve Man”, his reputed wife, Fiona Singh, and their son Neil Jupiter, Christopher Gordon, 38, called “Bigga” and Sherwin Jerome, 39, called “Dice Head”, were killed after gunmen opened fire at a vehicle transporting them.
Police Commissioner Henry Greene had said that Jupiter was suspected to have been a paid hit-man, an enforcer and also a transporter of drugs.
A senior police official yesterday told this publication that they were treating the shooting as a drug deal which went sour.
Furthermore the official said that they believe that it was the same white car which was used in the Cummings Lodge execution, used on Friday night.
Donna Aaron, the slain man’s mother, yesterday told Kaieteur News that she is deeply saddened by her son’s death.
“I want justice…just justice. I would really like to see the killers,” cried the woman. The woman said she could not think about a motive behind the shooting. Kaieteur News understands that Caesar’s wife Claudia resides in the United States with his three children.
The woman had told this newspaper that her son had just bought some fried chicken, which he shared with her.
He then left her St. Stephen’s Street home. The man then headed to Broad and Adelaide Streets, where he sat on a fire hydrant eating.
Minutes later, residents saw a white car with tinted windows speed past Caesar’s St. Stephen’s Street home. The occupants of the heavily tinted vehicle then turned into Broad Street and stopped next to Caesar.
It is reported that the men then exited and pumped several bullets into their victim. There are reports that the killers continued to shoot even as Caesar lay mortally wounded on the parapet.
The gunmen, according to an eyewitness walked calmly back into their vehicle and drove away. Investigators recovered a number of .45 spent shells.
Only last December Caesar was wounded during an altercation with an off-duty policeman outside the Roopa’s Bar in Kitty bar.
One of Caesar’s friends, 28-year-old Hewley Nicholas Barker, of Norton Street, Lodge, was slain in that same altercation.
It was reported that the officer had earlier parted a fight between one of the victims and another patron of the bar.
Kaieteur News was told that the victim left and returned with two other men, who immediately attacked the officer.
The eyewitness said that after the officer began shooting, the men began running away but the two injured men collapsed.
They were taken to the hospital where Barker was pronounced dead.
