On Sunday, October 29, 2023, a terrible incident occurred when Jason Pass, a 47-year-old Brooklyn man, shot and killed his neighbors over a small noise disagreement in their Brooklyn flat.
What did Jason Pass do?
According to reports, Pass fled the site of the horrific shooting that claimed the lives of Bladimy Mathurin, 47, and Chin Wai Mode, 27, two fathers and stepson. Authorities are reportedly searching for Pass. The ferocity demonstrated by the suspect over what appeared to be a trivial matter has sparked massive anger on social media following the event, which was captured on camera.
Numerous accounts state that Pass, who shared an apartment right below the victims with his aging mother, was furious about the noise that came from their unit all the time.
According to the NYPD, Pass had called 311 several times since March 2022 due to noise coming from Bladimy Mathurin’s apartment, which is occupied by his wife Marie Delille and her two children, including Chin Wai Mode.
It was said that the problem has caused arguments between the neighbors in the past. But on Sunday, after Pass drew a gun and shot the Brooklyn father and son, their argument turned fatal.
The victim lived on the fourth floor of the Flatbush Gardens complex at 1418 Brooklyn Ave. Surveillance footage from the corridor on the day of the event showed Jason Pass waiting by the stairs near the victim’s apartment, while Bladimy Mathurin was seen trying to get dressed by the door.

Who was Jason Pass living with?
Jason Pass is wanted for the murders of his upstairs neighbours in a Brooklyn apartment, and authorities are currently actively looking for him. Before being let go in 2005, Pass worked as a correctional officer at the Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Westchester, according to the New York Daily News.
According to the publication, Pass was fired the same month he was charged with pointing a gun at two plainclothes police officers during a road rage incident on Flatlands, Brooklyn’s Ralph Avenue. Pass admitted to engaging in disorderly conduct after being accused of menacing and reckless endangerment.
The Daily News was informed by the suspect’s sister that her brother acted in self-defense. When Pass, who resides with his 73-year-old mother, complained about the noise levels, the sister said that the upstairs occupants often turned belligerent and would provoke an argument.
