Kadeem Jimenez, a 31-year-old Brady Ghut resident, was the man killed in a shooting in the Major Bay area on Dec. 12, police announced two days later.
At 3 p.m. on the day of the killing, police received a report of the shooting, and Mr. Jimenez was subsequently pro- nounced dead at the scene, according to a Dec. 14 press release from Police Information Officer Akia Thomas.
Police didn’t provide further details, but on Dec. 14 JY Harbour View Marina issued a statement expressing condolences and noting that the shooting happened in its parking lot.
“As one of our loyal customers, we were fortunate to get to know Kadeem and are all deeply saddened by the events that have resulted in such a horrible ending to his life,” according to the business, which closed until last Thursday. “We should all be alarmed by the growing number of gun violence incidents in our community. Gun violence impacts us all and creates lifelong trauma for the children and families affected.”
