Residents of Fabers Road Extension woke up on Sunday, August 31, 2014, to the early morning gunfire which claimed the life of 38 year-old Michael “Pama” Usher.

Very little is known at this time about the motivation for this street slaying, but at around 4:30 a.m., Usher left his mother’s house on Fabers Road Extension. He was riding his bike, heading towards the George Price Highway. That’s when an unknown gunman ambushed him and fired several shots in his direction. Usher, who was caught off-guard was injured in his upper body and head, and he collapsed in the middle of the street. He died on the spot, while his attacker rode off.

Police responded shortly after it happened, and they recovered six 9mm expended shells and one of the slugs.

Investigators are looking for suspects, and any information would be helpful, especially because, at this time, there is no reasonable connection that police can make between Usher’s past and how his life was violently ended. He was a mason, and though he’s been charged in the past for crimes such as robberies, burglaries and theft, he is not known to have any sort of gang affiliation.
