THE teenager gunned down with his 14-year-old brother on Saturday afternoon was recently released on bail for murder and was being electronically monitored.

Jaquan Rolle, 18, was shot multiple times and killed around 2pm after attending the funeral of his elder brother, Jermaine Rolle, who was murdered two weeks ago.

Their younger brother, Athon Rolle, was also shot, after two masked gunman ambushed the brothers at a traffic light on Soldier Road near Robinson Road.

Police say the gunman jumped out of a gold coloured vehicle and shot the teens multiple times before speeding off. The brothers were taken to Princess Margaret Hospital where Jaquan died shortly after arrival. The 14-year-old underwent emergency surgery and is listed in critical condition.

The Tribune understands that Jaquan Rolle was charged in connection with the August 26, 2012 murder of 22-year-old Emmerson Harding Jr. He was a juvenile at the time. Harding was at a club on East Sunrise Highway in Grand Bahama when he was shot multiple times.

Jaquan Rolle was recently released on bail and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Anthony Ferguson, said police are still unsure whether his murder was related to those charges or the shooting death of his brother two weeks ago.

Jermaine Rolle Jr was shot and killed in front of a home in Yellow Elder Gardens. The boys’ father, Jermaine Rolle Sr, was also murdered – he was shot and killed in August 2010, also in Yellow Elder Gardens.

ACP Ferguson said police are unsure if all the matters are related, but they are following “significant leads” and although no one is currently in police custody, police “have a good idea” who they are looking for.

The country’s murder count for 2014 stands 116, according to The Tribune’s records, three shy of last year’s total count.

Investigations continue.

Anyone with information on any of these homicides is asked to contact police at 911 or 919, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 328-TIPS.

Understandably, my initial comment was a bit harsh, but I'm just reaching my breaking point here with all the crime and murders, and here you have just one family that seems to be a nest of criminal activity. Very demoralizing.

You should search the facts before you attack persons and entire families who may , themselves, be victims.

Can certain families be "nationally monitored" by NIA after it becomes apparent that are criminally connected or involved in serious criminal activities?????? If the parents and a number of siblings appear before the courts, then that shall give rise to a law enforcement red flag.

Anyone who tries to justify over 100 Bahamian men, most under the age of 24, being murdered every year is probably part of the plan. to steal this country from the rightful inheirators. How do you divide and conquer?

Insurance providers, like any business, need any concise and also achievable marketing and advertising plan. Nowadays, however, we have to modify this kind of statement to learn. http://www.eggarinsuranceagency.com/">eggar insurance agency
