Update: A 20-year-old man who died after being shot in the head in front of a house on Martin Drive Wednesday night has been identified as Jason Charles Powery.
Police say they were called to the nearby Globe Bar where they found the West Bay man with what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the head. The man was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
Yellow crime scene tape and two police cars blocked off a small section of Martin Drive, a narrow neighborhood street off Shedden Road, most of the day Thursday.
There was blood on the ground in front of the door to a teal-colored house surrounded by yellow police tape. The single-story house backed up to a dirt lot, the back walls covered in graffiti.
Neighbors reported hearing one shot late Wednesday night and said police responded quickly to the scene in central George Town.
Several people who live in the area, who declined to give their names, said there had been problems with violence at the home before, which was known as a “party spot.”
