A resident of the area said they heard at least six gun shots around 11pm Saturday night. The gun shots, the resident said was so loud that it woke up people who were already sleeping.
SMN News learnt that a large amount of people who knows the victim and families of the victim rushed to the St. Maarten Medical Center and waited until he died. Officers who worked Saturday night were forced to remain at the hospital until the early hours of Sunday morning as the crowd was getting out of control.
Amador Jones is the son of Elton Jones, advisor to the Democratic Party and Jackie Labega. Both families as well as the victim are well known to the St. Maarten community.
In the meantime, the RST and local detectives working on several murder and robbery cases managed to solve those cases. SMN News has been reliably informed that two of five suspects arrested last week are responsible for a string of murders and robberies that were committed on the island earlier this year.
Police arrested some suspects in a bar on AT Illidge Road and in Dutch Quarter; two of the five suspects were released from pre-trail detention while the others remained behind bars.
The Police and Public Prosecutor are expected to hold a press conference on Monday afternoon where they will break their silence on the ongoing investigations that have been taking place.
