Wanted suspect charged with murder

Nassau, BAHAMAS- A wanted suspect is behind bars after being charged in relation to a fatal shooting earlier this month.

Prosecutors say Lavardo Poitier is responsible for the August 4 murder of Omar Fox.

The incident happened outside a bar on Rosedale Street around 11pm.

Police said a man on the back of a truck shot Fox as he argued with two other men on the street.

Poitier didn’t have to plead to the murder charge when he appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Roberto Reckley on Monday.

He is next due to appear in court on November 14 to receive a voluntary bill of indictment.
