(CNS): A 26-year-old man from West Bay remained in police custody Thursday morning as police continued the investigation into the murder of Irvin Garlon Bush (52) in Miss Daisy Lane on 15 September, which was the first murder in Cayman this year. Following a major police operation in West Bay, the man was arrested at 2:25pm on Tuesday24 September on suspicion of the fatal shooting. The RCIPS said that officers from the Uniform Support Group led the joint police operation, supported by the Air Operations Unit. Meanwhile, a 22-year-old suspect who was arrested in connection with the same crime has been released on police bail. He was arrested in Breakers on Tuesday 17 September.

The police have not stated since the shootinghow many gunmen were involved in the crime, in which Bush was shot outside his house as he was returning home. The victim was the father of Robert Mackford Bush (28), who was also shot and killed in the district two years ago in September 2011 in a gang-related killing that sparked a series of shootings in West Bay and George Town, in which three other young men lost their lives.

Brian Borden (28), also from West Bay, has been charged with the murder of Robert Bush and has been on remand at HMP Northward for more than one year awaiting trial. His hearing was recently postponed as a result of problems with the prosecution’s main witness in the case against him.

Police have still not stated if they suspect the motive for the slaying of his father was also gang-related.
