Akeem ‘Tallman’ Bess of Ottley Hall was gunned down on Monday morning while hanging out at ‘The Plant Shop’ at Lower Bay Street.
Reports are that around 9 am, a man, using a hooded sweater to mask his identity, shot Bess approximately six times about the body.
The 27-year-old later died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH).
In February 2017, police issued a wanted bulletin for Bess in relation to a robbery that took place in Edinboro on January 16, 2017.
Bess gave himself up on Saturday, February 17, 2017 with the assistance of a lawyer and was charged with stealing a number of items including cash.
When he appeared at the Serious Offences Court, he was granted bail in the amount of EC$5000.
He is the 10th person to have been killed violently here this year.
