Roban condemns latest shooting

Walter Roban, the Shadow Minister of National Security, has expressed concern at an apparent “escalation of violent crime”.

Mr Roban, the local MP for the St Monica's Road area, where a 34-year-old man was shot last night, spoke out on behalf of the Progressive Labour Party.

“Once again the peace of Bermuda's holiday period has been shattered by an intolerable act of violence,” Mr Roban said in a statement.

“The PLP is angered and ?saddened by what is the latest in what appears to be an escalation of violent criminal activity. Our prayers go out for the victim, their friends, family and loved ones.

“As the Member of Parliament for the area that includes St Monica's, I know the sensitivity and tragic history of gun violence in our community.

“Time after time, we have seen our neighbours, our friends and our family members wounded or murdered in gun violence. Too many of our families have been devastated and we must find solutions to make our streets safer, our families stronger and our communities less divided.”
