RCIPS detectives are reviewing closed-circuit camera footage of a daytime killing in central George Town in their hunt for a murder suspect. Damean “Deebo” Seymour, 34, was shot dead on Martin Drive near Tigris Street at approximately 11:40 a.m. Monday.
Police said the suspect is described as male, between 5 feet, eight inches and six feet tall, slim, and with a fair complexion. The suspect wore a long-sleeved white shirt and dark pants. He was seen running from Martin Drive toward Tigris Street just after the shooting.
Detectives acknowledged Tuesday that potential gang connections in the shooting are being reviewed as part of the investigation, but they did not immediately comment on a motive.
Mr. Seymour had been accused in connection with a number of gun-related crimes between 2003 and 2008, including alleged involvement in two murder cases from 2003 and 2004, but he was never convicted.
Detectives ask anyone who may have seen the suspect or anything suspicious Monday around 11:30 a.m. to contact them at 949-4222.
