Bahamas Press is reporting the alleged Zoe Pound gang member was shot eight times about the body at a known drug purchasing spot in the Fox Hill Community.
Black died on the scene behind a building adjacent to the Chinese Restaurant on Fox Hill Road. He died immediately following the shooting, which occurred around 7pm. Police deep throat to BP alleged the victim/gang member was in the area making an illegal transaction when a gunman opened fire on the victim.
Police say they are getting tough but the blood levels are rising by the day in the Bahamas.
Culture writer Lovy Jean writes, “Observers say that the Zoe Pound Gang as it is officially known was formed in 1992 in ‘Lil’ Haiti, Miami and has evolved into a very aggressive and well-organized group made up of Haitian nationals that have established themselves all over the world notably in South Florida and in the Bahamas. They identify themselves by wearing the Haitian flag, large jewelry with gangster like persons often in large groups, rarely alone.
“Nevertheless, many Haitians are quick to denounce and criticize the Zoe Pound for being a false representation of Haitian culture.”
