UPDATE: Ex-cop granted $15,000 bail in Exuma killing


A former police officer is facing a manslaughter charge after he shot a suspect in his back.

Sergeant Jason Anderson, 52, was off-duty when he fatally shot Jarvis Burrows at Harts, Exuma around 9pm on October 28. Burrows died two hours later while waiting on an emergency flight at the Exuma International Airport.


Police arrested and fired Anderson shortly after the incident. A video of Anderson standing over Burrows as he lay bleeding on the ground went viral on social media. Bystanders pleaded for Anderson to get immediate medical care for Burrows, but he appeared more concerned about getting a small bag of marijuana of out the dying man’s hands.

As a man begged for Anderson to put the wounded suspect in the car, he snapped, “What car I guh put him in?”


Anderson was fired and arrested shortly after the incident.


He was not required to enter a plea to the charge when he made his initial court appearance before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt and remanded to prison.
