Police raided a home last night in connection with a firearms incident near a nightclub.

Acting Detective Inspector Jason Smith said: “The Bermuda Police Service executed a firearms warrant today at a residence off Factory Lane, Pembroke.”

Mr Smith said no arrests were made, but there was a “strong person of interest” they were keen to trace.

He also confirmed that no firearms were seized in the raid, which happened at around 5.30pm.

The raid followed an incident where a man pointed what appeared to be a gun at a group of men in a car park near Ambiance nightclub in Angle Street, but no shots were fired.

The incident happened at about 3.45am on January 4.

Mr Smith said: “The investigation is ongoing and we are still making our inquiries.”

He asked anyone with information on the Ambiance incident to contact police or use the confidential and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
