The Bermuda Police Service have confirmed the hunt is still on for the person who fatally shot Colford Ferguson.

Khyri Smith-Williams, 27, was found guilty of premeditated murder and the use of a firearm to commit an indictable offence in the 2011 killing of Mr Ferguson after a week of trial on Tuesday. A second person who pulled the trigger is said to be still at large.

Troy Harris, a key witness in the trial, claimed in his testimony that while Smith-Williams confessed to him he played a part in the murder, it was Rasheed Muhammad who shot the gun that killed Mr Ferguson.

Mr Ferguson, 29, was shot dead as he worked on a house near the junction of Mangrove Bay Road and East Shore Road in Somerset.

A BPS spokesman said yesterday: “The investigation remains open regarding the murder of Colford Ferguson, as the evidence indicates that two persons were involved.

“Police are still appealing to members of the public who know of any information that could assist in identifying the other person involved in this brutal murder to call the Serious Crime Department on 247-1739 in the strictest confidence.”
