No charges in West Bay shooting death

A police car in position at the scene of Tuesday's murder at Miss Daisy Lane.

No charges have been filed in relation to the shooting death of a West Bay man who was gunned down in his yard nearly two weeks ago.

Shaquille Bush, 24, died after being shot multiple times. Police say the incident occurred between 5pm and 5:30pm on Tuesday, 12 Nov.

Two days after Bush’s death, police announced that a 44-year-old West Bay man had been arrested on suspicion of murder. The suspect has since been released on bail and police are calling on members of the community to come forward.

Police previously stated that at the time of the shooting the area was dimly lit with natural lighting, and detectives believe there may have been people in and around the location when the shooting occurred who have information that could assist with the investigation.
