On-the-run Jason Pass Shot by NYPD During Car Stop, Nabbed for Slaying Upstairs Brooklyn Neighbors Over Noise Complaints

On-the-run Jason Pass Shot by NYPD During Car Stop, Nabbed for Slaying Upstairs Brooklyn Neighbors Over Noise Complaints

A Brooklyn man, Jason Pass, who had been on the run after fatally shooting two upstairs neighbors over noise complaints, was apprehended after being shot and critically wounded by NYPD officers during a car stop early Wednesday, according to police sources.

Jason Pass, 47, had been evading authorities since Sunday night when he was caught on video shooting and killing 47-year-old Bladimy Mathurin and Mathurin's 27-year-old stepson Chin Wai Mode in the hallway of their Flatbush Gardens apartment building.

Around 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police located Pass driving down Bay 44th St. in Bath Beach, Brooklyn, and conducted a traffic stop, according to sources.

Pass was shot multiple times by officers as they attempted to arrest him, as per a police source. The suspect was armed with a knife at the time of the shooting, a second police source mentioned.

Pass, who frequently stayed with his elderly mother in the apartment directly below Mathurin's fourth-floor unit on Brooklyn Ave. in East Flatbush, had been lodging complaints about the noise made by the family living upstairs, according to the police.

Pass's older sister confirmed the ongoing dispute on Tuesday but asserted that Mathurin and his family had previously threatened her mother and brother.

On the night of the incident, Pass went upstairs simply to talk to Mathurin "about the jumping and furniture movement, and all these situations," she claimed.

She argued that the shooting was an act of "self-defense."

Video footage obtained by The Daily News shows Mathurin brandishing a pair of scissors as the hallway argument escalated on that Sunday night.
