Bahamas government press officer dies after being shot multiple times

Bahamas-Mckey-400

The Bahamas government has paid tribute to Latore Mackey, the former Deputy Director of the Bahamas Information Service (BIS), who was found dead on Market Street on Monday.
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell said he was “saddened” by the murder, adding that Mackey, on joining the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) worked “like a fish in water.
“He carried out excellent work at the Bahamas Information Services and in the Office of the Prime Minister. He was the future of our party. Now we have lost him all too soon,” Mitchell said in a statement.
Media reports said that Mackey was shot “multiple times in his government registered vehicle”.
According to the Nassau Guardian “sources close to the investigation told The Guardian that the crime scene yielded several clues that have raised questions for officers.”
Police are working on the theory that an argument inside a nearby club may have lead to his death. He was the owner of Blue Reef Sports Bar and Lounge in the capital.
The Guardian reports that “Mackey was reportedly found with several thousand dollars in cash on him when officers arrived on the scene.”
Numerous people took to social media to share their shock and sadness at Mackey’s murder.

According to The Guardian records, the murder toll for 2014 now stands at 82 with five murders alone in New Providence since Saturday night.
