RCIPS responds to conviction of Jashawn Johnson for murder of Michael Bush

On Thursday 2 September, 21 year old Jashawn Johnson of George Town was convicted of the murder of 22 year old Michael Bush, which took place at the Strand on West Bay Road, 24 December 2020. Johnson will be sentenced November 2021.

"We thank the witnesses that came forward and gave evidence which played a vital role in achieving this outcome", says Superintendent Peter Lansdown. "Although the police are satisfied with the court result, it doesn't take away from the fact that a young man has lost his life and yet another family from our community has lost their son, due to a few seconds of madness with a weapon".

Police remind the public that it is illegal to carry an offensive weapon. In the heat of the moment situations can escalate quickly and bad decisions can be made resulting in often life changing injuries or in the worst cases, fatalities, as is demonstrated in this case.
