PLP Express Condolences To Berkley Family

December 11, 2016

“The Progressive Labour Party is saddened to convey our condolences to the loved ones of Deshaun Jerry Berkley following his shooting and tragic death early Thursday morning,” Shadow Minister of National Security Walter Roban said.

“We mourn, along with the wider community and especially the Western Stars Sports Club Family, the violent death of another young, black man; a father, a son, a friend.

“As Bermudians, as family, we must commit to addressing the underlying causes of these devastating incidents, which happen far too often. All of us, including the business community, must support each other, particularly the clubs who often bear the brunt of these tragedies.

“All of Bermuda wants to see the day when this long painful journey of violence will end. This will only happen through a united effort. We echo the call by the leaders of the Dandy Town-Western Stars Club for witnesses to come forward to identify the perpetrator.

“There are not enough words to express our sadness over the death of Deshaun. The loss to his family and friends is devastating and we encourage everyone to come together to support them.”

The police have appealed for witnesses or anyone who may have seen suspicious activity around Western Stars Sports Club in the early hours of Thursday morning to contact the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
