NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The family of a man who was shot and killed by three off duty police officers held a candlelight vigil in his memory last evening.

The 31-year-old man’s family says there are still many unanswered questions as they seek the truth about what transpired during the incident.

Jared Higgs has the story.

Azario Major’s family, continuing to advocate for justice in his death, a little over six weeks after he was shot and killed by three off-duty police officers outside a bar on Fire Trail Road.

On December 26th, 2021 at around 8 p.m., police say Major was acting disorderly and left the bar twice before returning with a gun.

According to his family, he was shot three times in the head, and more than 15 times about the body. They say he had to be identified by a tattoo on his neck bearing his sister’s name.

The heartbroken woman, and Major’s father Frederick Major, appealed to members of the public to support their cause. They say they will begin advocating for other families whose loved ones have been killed by police.

Other loved ones remembered Major fondly and also questioned the government’s commitment to addressing concerns over police use of force.

Major’s family has retained the services of Attorney Ramona Farquharson-Seymour.
