Chinwai Mode Obituary, Cause Of Death: Two people were killed on Sunday night after an apparent dispute over noise in their Brooklyn apartment and authorities are increasingly searching for the suspect. The victims were identified on Monday as a father and son 47-year-old Bladimy Mathurin and his 27-year-old son Chinwai Mode.
Jason Pass, aged 47, has been identified through recovered surveillance footage depicting the entire shooting incident. Six 311 calls originated from Pass’ residence since March 8, 2022, citing disturbances from the apartment above.
The victims’ upstairs apartment, with wooden flooring, seemingly caused noise issues due to regular walking. Despite complaints about banging, it was likely the result of people moving back and forth, explained a police official.
The search is now underway for Pass, who evaded the premises using the elevator and was last sighted heading eastward on foot. With a previous arrest in 1992 for robbery, Pass remains at large, leaving the affected family grappling with cherished memories.
Assistance from Assemblywoman Monique Chandler-Waterman is aiding the grieving family’s plea for heightened security. The assemblywoman has pledged to collaborate with law enforcement to ensure the family’s well-being during the ongoing pursuit of the suspect.
The family will release an obituary and funeral arrangements for Bladimy Mathurin and Chinwai Mode.
New York City witnessed a 16.8% reduction in shooting incidents in June 2023 compared to the same period in 2022 (104 incidents compared to 125). This decline in shootings contributes to the broader 24.7% reduction in citywide shooting incidents during the first half of 2023 in contrast to the corresponding period in the preceding year (482 incidents compared to 636), resulting in 196 fewer individuals being shot this year compared to the last.
Moreover, homicides saw a 3.1% decrease in June 2023, with 31 incidents recorded compared to 32 in the same month last year. These reductions in shooting and homicide cases are indicative of the effectiveness of the NYPD’s comprehensive gun-violence reduction strategies, fostering growth and development across all communities within New York City. The NYPD’s persistent focus on combatting gun violence and collaborative efforts with various partners have contributed significantly to this progress.
During June 2023, the department achieved record-breaking numbers in gun arrests, culminating in 345 arrests and the confiscation of 300 firearms. In total, NYPD officers have seized 3,424 guns from the streets of New York City and made 2,162 gun-related arrests in the first half of 2023.
