Police are marking the third anniversary today of a shooting death with a fresh appeal for anyone with information on the murder to come forward.

A police spokesman said the case was still under investigation.

Patrick Dill, 26, was shot outside his home on Crossland Lane, Pembroke, at 10.45pm on May 21, 2016 as he got into a car to go to a party.

The spokesman said: “The investigating team would like to speak with witnesses in the Crossland Lane area of Pembroke that might have seen persons acting suspiciously in the area before and after the fatal shooting, as well as persons that have information about this callous murder.”

He added that any information could be significant and could help bring closure to the family and friends of the victim.

Mr Dill, a father of two, was killed a few days before his 27th birthday.

Police said that the Elbow Beach employee was not affiliated to gangs.

Anyone who can help the inquiry should Detective Sergeant Jason Smith on 441-717-0864 or e-mail jsmith2@bps.bm

The spokesman said all information would be treated in the “strictest of confidence”.

Anyone with information can also contact independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
