Man charged in three shootings

Police officers escort Sean Higgs to court

NASSAU-Police have charged a man in connection with three separate shootings this year.

Sean Higgs appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt on Thursday charged with murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say Higgs, 26, is responsible for the February 8 shooting murder of Fredrick Ferguson at Lincoln Boulevard on February 8.

One month later, on March 7, prosecutors allege that Higgs opened fire on three people at Miami Street, shooting one of them in the butt.

He faces three counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life in relation to that shooting. The complainants in that case are Israel Vassor and two others, identified by the aliases Alpha and Bravo.

Then on March 14, Higgs allegedly attempted to murder Ramerro Rolle in a shooting at Homestead Street.

Higgs did not have to enter pleas to the charges. The magistrate denied him bail and will return to court on June 8.
