Aug. 29, 2001 — Police have identified three suspects in the shooting death of Kaunda Bryan, 25, on St. Croix Sunday.
The three are Zacchaeus "Iceman" Blake, 26; Blaine Claxton, 22; and Eugene "Tayo" Williams, 18. Blake and Claxton live in Castle Coakley, and Williams is a resident of Harvey housing community, according to St. Croix Deputy Police Chief Novelle Francis.
Bryan, son of Sen. Adelbert Bryan, was reportedly shot after an argument at an impromptu "matched" horse race in Betty’s Hope escalated into guns being fired. Bryan, shot once in the chest, was pronounced dead around noon at Juan F. Luis Hospital.
Police said the suspects are wanted for first-degree murder and weapons charges. Blake is 5 feet 10, weighs about 140 pounds and has dreadlocks. Claxton is 5 feet 8 and has a shaved head. No description of Williams was available.
Bryan’s funeral is scheduled for noon Friday at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Christiansted, with viewing from 11 a.m.
