Musician Lester Adderley Sr shot, killed

Bahamian musician Lester Adderley Senior was murdered in Freeport Sunday morning, police there reported. They say he was shot outside his Game Time Sports Bar shortly after midnight.

His son, Lester Jr, was also shot and killed in that city in August 2015.

Media in The Bahamas reported that the elder Adderley had assumed control of his son's businesses following his death. Game Time Sports Bar was one of those ventures.

Adderley was a major player in Bahamian music, working with top acts like The Baha Men— best known for the mega hit song, Who Let The Dogs Out.

He also played on Bad Boys, the Inner Circle album which won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1994.

According to the Tribune 242 newspaper, “Sometime after midnight yesterday, police received reports of multiple gunshots fired in the area of East Atlantic Drive and sent a team of officers to investigate. When police arrived, they discovered the lifeless body of a man on the ground.”

The deceased was later identified as Adderley. No arrest has been reported following the incident.
