BATH BEACH, Brooklyn (WABC) — A man wanted for a double murder in East Flatbush was shot and killed during a standoff with police Wednesday morning.

He was taken to hospital in critical condition where he died from his injuries.

Jason Pass, 47, was wanted in a double fatal shooting of father and son in Brooklyn Sunday evening.

Pass was wanted for the murder of the residents of an upstairs apartment. He was identified through surveillance video recovered by police that shows the entire shooting.

Family members identified the victims as Bladimy Mathurin, 47, and her son Chinwai Mode, 27.

Officials said they attempted to stop Pass’ vehicle shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday after a license plate reader indicated the car was linked to the case.

When police approached the parked vehicle, they said he jumped out of the car with a knife in his hand. Once officers caught up with him, they talked for 15 minutes to convince the suspect to drop the knife.

Police said the suspect charged at the officers who then fired their weapons in self-defense. The suspect was shot three times in the chest and once in the right leg.

Pass is a former transit driver who worked for the MTA between 2012 and 2018.

This double shooting appears to be the result of a years-long dispute between neighbors over noise. Six 311 calls have been made from Pass’s apartment since March 8, 2022, complaining about noise coming from the upstairs apartment.
