Arrest in West Bay killing

Royal Cayman Islands Police have made an arrest in connection with the killing of 20-year-old Tyrone Burrell in West Bay last month.

Police said an operation in the Birch Tree Hill area on Sunday led to the arrests.

Police arrested 39-year-old man in relation to the death of Mr. Burrell. He is currently detained on suspicion of murder, possession of ganja and consumption of ganja. No charges have been filed in the case.

In the same operation another man, aged 30 years, was arrested on suspicion of possession of ganja and consumption of ganja. He also was not charged.

Mr. Burrell was shot to death the evening of 8 September in the yard of a home on Birch Tree Hill Road where he had gone to attend a party.

It was the same property where 29-year-old Damion Ming, an associate of Mr. Burrell’s was shot dead in March.

Police said earlier that they believed Mr. Burrell had known some details about Mr. Ming’s killing, but had refused to speak with officers about that incident.
