Seventeen year old Diondre Nemhard was socializing at his aunt’s house last Saturday when a male individual walked into the yard and gunned him down in front of his family. One person has been detained in connection with the murder. Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams stated that police cannot ascertain if he is the actual shooter for lack of eye witness information.
“In respect to the murder of Deandra Nembhard yes we do have a suspect in custody but you would know the fact that the person has not yet been charged we are not sure if he is the person because while people out there may be telling us things verbally no one has given us anything in writing for us to be able to say that we have tangible evidence to suggest that this is the person who did it, so in the absence of that I will not be releasing the name of that person to the media.”
Police cannot say if the apprehended suspect will be charged.
