Homicide victim #52 on St. James Road in the Kemp Road community has been identified as Francisco Gray 29.

NASSAU| BP is reporting detectives are on the scene of a homicide the 4th since Friday.

The incident is right now unfolding on Polhemus Street off Nassau Street, where a man was fatally shot.

BP has now identified that 3rd homicide victim on St. James Road in Kemp Road as Francisco Gray, 29.

Additionally, the first homicide for the weekend we know was recorded on Friday evening where a man – with some 13 children – was fatally shot along with a woman. The incident unfolded just around 9pm at a bar on Martin Street and Baillou Hill Road. That victim has been identified by relatives as 45-year-old Lamont Johnson. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Johnson and Gray were the 51st and 52nd homicide victim for the year at a time when the Minister of National Security Marvin Dames told Parliament last week that crime is down.
