Suspect knows we’re looking for him – Police

Police are continuing to search for a male suspect in connection to the murder of Prince Edness on Sunday night and other firearms incidents.

Police units, including armed officers, conducted search warrants in the Mount Hill, Pembroke area yesterday morning and three people were taken into police custody.

Acting Assistant Police Commissioner James Howard told The Royal Gazette: “The one individual who we are looking for in relation to the shooting, he is still at large and he knows that we are looking for him.

“We encourage him and others who were involved in other firearms incidents to make contact with myself or other officers and save their families and friends the agony of us coming in whether it be morning, afternoon or night time, executing warrants.

“The public have been really good — the response has not been overwhelming, but I hope it will become overwhelming.

“I will remind the public I am not expecting them to put themselves or their family in harm's way, so if they do see something suspicious I don't want the public to be approaching the persons but pick up the phone and give us the best description you can.”

Bermuda Police Service re-enforced its message to the public “if you see something say something”.

A police spokesman added: “This is a means to empower residents across the Island to take action in their community. In recent days, we have seen a resurgence of firearm-related incidents.

“Specific circumstances which should arouse suspicion are: the presence of one or two persons on a motorcycle ‘posted up' or parked in a yard or neighbourhood in a low lit or secluded area, most likely with the engine still running. In addition, the motorcycle's license plate may be missing or covered up.

“Individuals acting suspiciously on motorcycles – perhaps riding in a dangerous manner, most likely wearing dark-coloured clothing with their faces covered, or wearing a helmet with a dark visor.”

Police have reminded the public that their safety comes first. If you encounter any of the mentioned circumstances, just call 911 immediately and report what is taking place, giving as much information as possible. Do not attempt to confront these individuals.
