Dancehall entertainer Squash and two alleged members of the infamous G-City gang arising from the parish of St. James in Jamaica have been implicated in the Lauderhill shooting incident in Florida that left two men dead.
Court records state that the 6ixx group headed by Squash has been working with a gang called ‘Bushead’ against another criminal component referred to as the ‘Badbreed gang’. It further revealed that members of the G-City gang suspected that one of the deceased men identified as ‘Muscle Man,’ who is said to be an assassin, attempted to kill the Jamaican entertainer on August 3 while he was negotiating a drug deal.
This attempt on Squash’s life is said to have caused G-City gang members to believe that the hitman was hired by their rival, Ramos.
Squash’s producer, 26-year-old Jahreme ‘J-Man’ Shelton, has since been arrested in relation to the October 19 shooting and charged on October 25 with two counts of premeditated murder in the first degree. Surveillance footage identified Shelton’s mode of dress along with a DNA test amongst other evidence to place him at the scene of the crime.
Nonetheless, news circulated that the Ambala artiste was involved in the shooting, however, this was firmly dismissed when he went live to clear his name. He indicated that his main focus is doing music and he is not connected to criminal activities.
On the night of the murder, Lauderhill law enforcement officers responded to the scene in the Blueberry Hill Condos to discover two men dead in the residential complex’s parking lot. Witnesses told officers that a third person involved in the shooting fled the scene, in which it was later disclosed that someone nursing gunshot wounds appeared at a nearby hospital for treatment.
According to court documents, police claim to have received information that pinned Squashman, Freeman (alleged G-City gang leader) and J-Man at the scene of the double homicide.
The deceased men were shot approximately eight times each in the head and face.
