Was Cleon “Tush” Smith targeted over drugs, old conflicts or something else? Police have no shortage of leads in the Sunday night murder, which took place as he sat behind a gated residence on Sylvester Boulevard in Hattieville Village. With the details here is Senior Superintendent of Police Edward Broaster, who knew Smith well.
Where ever the investigation leads, one thing is for sure; according to Officer in Charge of the Hattieville sub-station Inspector Rochelle Chan, the shooter or shooters knew the poorly lighted and over-grown area where Smith was murdered well.
Smith was shot as many as six times and was pronounced dead at 10:39pm.
