Bodles FC’s player Dave Bertram is dead after armed thugs shot him at his Sandy Bay, Clarendon home yesterday afternoon.

Information reaching Old Harbour News is that the shooting incident occurred at about 2:30 pm when Bertram, 29, was called out by men on a bike. Upon approaching the men, Bertram was shot twice in the lower abdomen. The men escaped while Bertram was pronounced dead at the May Pen Hospital.

An attacking player who plays forward or in an advance midfield role, Bertram was instrumental, as he scored in the final, in helping Bodles lift the St Catherine Division One title while gaining promotion to next season’s St Catherine Major League.

Club manager Devon Brown, says the players and management staff are still shock and in complete disbelief.

“The entire Bodles Football Club in mourning right now,” Bodles told Old Harbour News. “Everybody who knows Dave knows that Dave is a very jovial person; him full of jokes and laugh for everything. We don’t know Dave as an aggressive person who is into any form of violence. But it’s really sad. We all are mourning and we just want the family to stay strong.”

An officer attached to the May Pen Police Station has confirmed the incident before informing Old Harbour News that investigators are peicing together whatever evidence they can garner at this time with the hope of solving another heinous crime in the parish.
