Gun crime witnesses urged to come forward
Police today urged the public to help with their investigations into a string of gun incidents.
Investigators, who raided a Pembroke home yesterday in connection with a firearms incident near the Ambiance nightclub in Hamilton, said they still needed more assistance from people with information.
A spokesman said this evening: “The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank those members of the public who have come forward with information and encourage others to assist the Bermuda Police Service in combating crime.
“The investigating team would still like to speak to those persons who may have information that can assist with any of the recent incidents that have involved the use of firearms.”
The raid yesterday, involving investigators from the Serious Crime Unit and support teams, took place at a residence off Factory Lane at about 5pm.
No arrests were made and no firearms were seized, and police said they were keen to trace a “strong person of interest”.
It came after an incident in a car park near Ambiance on Angle Street, in which a man pointed what appeared to be a gun at a group of men, in the early hours of January 4.
Four days later, a man entered Bulldogs Bar on Court Street with what appeared to be a firearm.
On December 22, a 32-year-old man was injured after a gunman opened fire at a group of people outside the Spinning Wheel on Court Street.
Anyone with information should call Detective Sergeant Jason Smith, the investigating officer, on 717-0864 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
