Hail of Gunfire: 2 More Gun Incidents Last Night

March 22, 2010

In a week the likes Bermuda has never seen before, there are two more reports of gunfire from last night in Smiths and Sandys.

Marking the 7th and 8th gun incidents in only 9 days, Bermuda’s gun violence is now undeniably spiraling to levels unseen before.

Last night [Mar 21] a gun was discharged in the Club Road area, located in Devils Hole, Smiths Parish next to Harrington Workmans Club [map] at around 10:45pm.

Approximately two hours later at 12:45am a gun was shot in the Cambridge Road, Sandys Parish area [map].

In both cases the Police say forensic evidence found subsequently suggested that firearms had been discharged; however no one has reported being injured.

Reports of gunfire in St Georges early Sunday morning have been attributed to the Bermuda Regiment conducting a training exercise in the area.

This comes on the heels of a triple shooting 48 hours before on Friday night that left one man dead, and two injured.

The last nine days have seen a 16 year old shot, 3 men shot at one time, one murder, 2 men hospitalized, a taxi driver robbed at gunpoint, and guns discharged almost island-wide [Paget, Somerset, Pembroke, Warwick, Hamilton].
