Man arrested for Court Street gun incident

A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a firearm incident this weekend.

Police responded to reports of multiple gunshots on Court Street, near the junction with Elliot Street in Pembroke on Sunday afternoon.

The incident reportedly involved two men and resulted in one, a 34-year-old, suffering a superficial wound.

According to a police spokesman, officers executed a search warrant last night in the King Street area as part of a “proactive police investigation”, which led to the suspect being apprehended without incident.

“He remains in police custody and a file will be prepared for consideration by the Department of Public Prosecutions,” the spokesman added.

Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting and have not yet come forward are urged to contact Detective Sergeant Jason Smith at 441-717-0864, e-mail jsmith2@bps.bm or call the independent and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477.
