A few days of relief from a bloody 2020 ended tonight when a 26-year-old man was shot dead in Ste Madeleine.

According to reports, Akeem Clarke, also known as “Bachac” 23 of Orchid Gardens, Pleasantville was hanging out at a friend’s home at Midas Lane, Corinth Hills.

He was standing outside when around 7.30 pm, a man approximately 5′ 9″ tall, wearing a black hoodie walked up to him and fired several shots.

Clarke was struck several times on his upper body.

He fell to the floor while the suspect ran off.

When Southern Division police arrived, Clarke was already dead.

Investigators suspect that a hit was carried out on Clarke, however, no motive has been established so far.
