Veteran Dancehall DJ Captain Barkey known for his 1996 hit “Go Go Wine”, was shot dead outside a motel in the Bronx, New York with a woman.
According the New York Post, Blood-curdling screams woke up guests at the Holiday Motel at 3 a.m. when the woman’s ex-boyfriend allegedly pumped rounds into her companion for the night. After killing Barkey who’s real name is Wayne Hamilton, the shooter chased the woman, 38-year-old Tracy Bennett, to the back of the hotel. She pleaded for her own life before she too was shot dead.
Sources had said that Bennett had a restraining order against the suspect.
A statement was sent via BBM by Captain Barkey’s friend and DJ Partner Wickerman saying this:
