Shooting: CCTV Photo Released, Four Arrests

August 30, 2012 | 195 Comments

[Updated with video] The police have released a CCTV photo from the recent incident at Woody’s in Sandys showing a man with what appears to be a machine gun, and said that four Pembroke men have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm in relation to this incident. The firearm has not yet been recovered.

The photo provided by the police is below:

The police said the suspect[s] left the Spanish Point area on Saturday [Aug 25] on a jet ski and travelled to Boaz Island where the suspect[s] left the jet ski to carry out this act. The masked suspect appeared to be attempting to discharge the weapon, however no shots were discharged.

The jet ski is then believed to have returned using the same route to Spanish Point. The police have seized a jet ski believed to have been used in this incident.

A cropped version focused on the gunman we did is below:

Officers have also arrested four men – all from Pembroke – on suspicion of possessing a firearm in relation to this incident; however no firearm has yet been recovered.

The gun appeared to be a machine gun, and the police said: “It is concerning because if the images and the suggestion is true that the suspect in this matter was in possession of a weapon capable of automatic fire on a crowd of innocent people, then this incident could have resulted in multiple casualties.”

Full video of the police press conference:

The footage is being sent overseas for digital enhancement and analysis to see if it is possible determine the identity of the suspect and the weapon type.

Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro’s full statement is below:

The Bermuda Police Service is continuing its investigations into the appearance of a man carrying what appears to be a firearm outside the popular Somerset bar & restaurant known as Woody’s Drive In.

We are taking the unusual step today of releasing CCTV footage of the incident in the hope that we can identify the man. The circumstances of this matter have prompted us to undertake an intense investigation, and we need the assistance of the community.

The incident is believed to have happened shortly after 10pm this last Saturday 25th August. Members of the public reported that a masked man had emerged from the side of Woody’s, and produced what they initially described as a “machine gun”. The masked man appeared to be attempting to discharge the weapon, however no shots were discharged.

A full police investigation was immediately commenced, and the premises were attended by on duty police officers. The Bermuda Police Service has worked with the management of Woody’s to retrieve footage from their CCTV system to obtain images of the incident.

The CCTV footage has produced the following image that I wish to share with you that shows the suspected gunman at Woody’s.

You will note that the suspect is dressed head to toe in a blue rain suit including a hood and white – possibly latex – gloves, and a red scarf covering his face.

Investigations have further led us to believe that the suspect(s) left the Spanish Point area on a jet ski and travelled across the Great Sound to Gray’s Bridge, travelled through this bridge near to Boaz Island where he, or they, left the jet ski to carry out this act. The jet ski is then believed to have returned using the same route to Spanish Point.

A robust intelligence led investigation led officers from the Serious Crime Unit assisted by the Forensic Support Unit to seize & examine a jet ski believed to have been used in this incident, and the results of the tests conducted are due to be received in due course.

Officers have also arrested four men – all from Pembroke – on suspicion of possessing a firearm in relation to this incident; however no firearm has yet been recovered.

As you will note from the footage, the type of weapon cannot be clearly identified. However, the footage is being sent overseas for digital enhancement & analysis to determine the identity of the suspect and the weapon type – if possible.

This incident is concerning.

It is concerning because if the images and the suggestion is true that the suspect in this matter was in possession of a weapon capable of automatic fire on a crowd of innocent people, then this incident could have resulted in multiple casualties.

As I have stated on many previous occasions – the lack of respect for human life is overwhelming and must stop.

I am appealing to all of family, friends, and loved one out there that know something about this matter, or any other shooting or murder, to do the right thing – and help bring these perpetrators to justice. I am also asking those people in the community that are in a position to exert some influence over people engaged in these activities to intervene to prevent an escalation in tension & violence in response to this incident.

The Bermuda Police Service is capable of doing many things; our arrest and conviction rate for violent crime demonstrates this, however we are dependent on the assistance of the public in these matters.

To the patrons of Woody’s Bar: If you saw something, say something.
To the friends or relatives of the man in this photo: If you know something, say something.

We offer a number of ways you can bring people to justice:-

  • Call the independent & confidential CRIME STOPPERS hotline at 800-8477.
  • Call the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739.
  • Call any Police Station and speak to one of our officers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on 295-0011.

Update 5.27pm: Opposition Leader and Shadow National Security Minister Craig Cannonier has addressed this issue saying: “If the weapon being held by the young man in the picture is, as is being speculated, a sub machine gun, then it is a very serious escalation in the level of Bermuda’s gang violence.

“However, I believe the Police Service has sent a copy of that picture to experts in the United States for analysis. I think it would be prudent to wait until we have confirmation of what kind of weapon, if it is a weapon at all, was being used before we sound the alarm.

“Meantime, I understand the Police have made arrests. That is wonderful news…my congratulations to them. The community is greatly reassured by such swift and obviously capable action.”

Update 5.31pm: Minister of National Security Wayne Perinchief today echoed the Police Service’s call for public assistance in bringing to justice those involved in the latest incident of gun violence.

The Minister said: “The early cooperation of witnesses and the proprietors of the establishment is critical to the success of this investigation. With His Excellency the Governor I have been briefed today on the status of the investigation and I am confident that the Police are actively working several lines of inquiry.

“The early arrests indicate as much. With the release of the CCTV image the public will have an even greater opportunity to assist the Police and I encourage anyone with information to come forward.

“The destructive gang lifestyle when manifested in this way must be met with strong enforcement and a community united in deploring the act. We must do everything we can to see that justice is served.”

Being warned is forearmed....This information is vital and tourists are not naive..Has anyone read the "GLOBE" "ENQUIRER"or other gossip columns and mags..this is only new in Bermuda where we have always hidden the truth!!!Better to accept the awful truth than a despicable hurtful lie!Man up to Reality People and stop hiding from it!!

    Agree, not a great photo for Bermuda but every place on earth has issues similar to these so keep this in mind. What this shows is the quick response to this type situation and what we are doing to fight crime in our lovely Bermuda island. The world is changing; not just Bermuda. The economy is down is many places aroudn the world not just Bermuda, which suggests it is a global issue. The key is to find ways help through these difficult tumes i.e. for banks to lower their mortgage rates as the US have so people that are out of work can pay their mortgages. The Police are doing their job and I can see that they are doing their best. Now, let us try and do our part by helping our neighbors and working together to get through these changing times.

    I don't get it either. These punks all have family- children, mother, sister, aunties, uncles. Anyone of them could have been sitting off at Woody's and been shot. They could have shot up the place, then gone home like nothing happened only to hear there was a death in the family...THEIRS!!! Even if there is only .0001% of a functional brain cell working in that head of yours, please PLEASE use it and think about what you are doing to this country and what kind of life your kids will have if this continues. If you don't give a rat's behind about anybody else, at least think of your loved ones. THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!

            The only "point" is that ALL of society benefits from criminal activity one way or another. 99.9% just prefer to bury their heads, turn a blind eye, or whatever else they have to do to ignore this fact while pointing a finger at those who seem to immediately gaining something from their "dirty money"!

The family's benefitting from this no exactly why they're benefitting and don't say anything. A mother who's child isn't working yet comes home with money to pay rent must question where they're getting the money from. I'd turn my son in ONETIME!!

                If you or your family members have a job in any business that sells goods or services you are accepting drug money everyday. Drug dealers purchase items and services. Nobody asks them where their money comes from because business is business. If they have to buy something (ie food) or pay bills (ie Belco) the business will take their money with out questioning where it came from. Therefore everybody is benefitting unless you live under a rock.

                  I understand what you are saying. My question to you is how do you propose I stop "benefitting" from this? You said, "99.9% just prefer to bury their heads, turn a blind eye, or whatever else they have to do to ignore this fact while pointing a finger at those who seem to immediately gaining something from their “dirty money”!" My reply was if I knew who these mofo's were I'd do something about it...I certainly wouldn't turn a blind eye. It has to start from home. These mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, etc. have to put their foot down and turn these suckers in. Blood or not!! Society cannot stop "benefitting" (as you put it) if those that do know what's going on don't step up. That's exactly why we call it the “family & friends benefit package”, not the "society benefit package"!!

                    My best answer to this would be simple economics of supply and demand: Kill the demand for drugs = no need for the supply.
                    But in reality this will never happen. Think about it realistically. A person sells drugs. That means a chain of jobs is needed because of the drug dealers choice of profession. IE: Customs find drugs, Police arrest them, Prosecution/Judges deal with the case, Lawyer defends, News Reportes write story, and if convicted with jail time, Prison Officers babysit. Do you really think anybody really has a serious interest in killing the drug trade/industry anywhere in the world??? Do you see how many professions the illimination of drugs would irradicate?
                    In my opinion as stated a few weeks ago in another thread, we need proper education for our children. Once they have the skills and mindset to be able to do something better and set/reach goals things will start to change.
                    A hungry man will stop at nothing to eat. So if it means robbing, selling drugs or whatever to get the basics essentials of life, that is what they will do.

                      You are absolutely right!! Education is key and we need to teach them as youngsters. Parents no longer have the upper hand over their children. Schools are no longer as strict as they used to be. What happened to morals? and values? and consequences? why aren't they being taught anymore? When I see students these days (not all) I can't believe how much has changed. From behaviour to uniforms. It's such a sad situation and I hope and pray Bermuda can overcome it.

That's why I hope these thugs would at least consider their children...although that's highly unlikely...

        What catches my eye is the fact that they're so affordable, but the most expensive is the stab proof vest, not so sure I'd trust that. Not that it matters anyway because if this guy was holding an AK-47, as it appears in the picture even though its hard to make out, no body armour on that site is going to stop those rounds, you'll be lucky if it simply holds you together until you can get help. What I can't understand is these weapons are specifically chosen by terrorist groups because of their high damage, rate of fire and reliability, they hardly ever jam. The barrel of the rifle is slighly larger than the round itself allowing it room to bounce through the barrel, also less chance of the round being lodged inside, once it leaves the barrel the round tumbles through the air rather than spinning making it quite an inacurate weapon. Its time to get serious, more fire power, more rounds downrange at once, less accuracy, more collateral damage. Think that's scary, think about this, you don't just fedex an AK-47 to yourself, someone let it through.

                  I'd rather they had to buy them off island too, at least then theres a chance customs MIGHT stop it. Can you imagine one gunman decked out in full kevlar attire along with a bullet proof face mask to cover his identity? Now can you imagine 5 of them? How many innocent lives will have to be lost before people realize the cons to this? Also sorry to burst your bubble but this body armour will stop your average police hand gun, or 5.56 rifle round, but the only thing stopping a gangsters 7.62 machine gun round is the 12x10 balistics plate in the vest located over the heart, good for one round, after it shatters, all the vest is good for is stopping your internal organs from falling out. For years the US army looked for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, you want to see one? Look in the picture above. That weapon is no joke and over the years they've taken more lives than Hiroshima. Sad reality is, someone knows where that gun is.

A balistics face mask, really? Even though its kind of an oxymoron you don't want gang memebers getting their hands on these sorts of things or the police will be at quite a unfair disadvantage. You do realize what happens when things get out of the police' control right? Well maybe its what we need. The british army won't play fair with these guys trust me.

      Mate, if you're from Somerset - white, black, rich, poor, or whatever - I can bet that you or someone in your immediate family and friends love to greeze on some Woody's. The place is an institution, my older brothers and parents and neighbours all went there and so do all my younger family. Some go in the day for a greeze, some sit off at the bar, some go in the evening. It is a neighbourhood spot where people know each other and are friendly when they don't. Whenever I've been there it's felt safe. Which is to say: Don't blame the establishment. Blame the a-hole allegedly from a completely different area who decided to go try shooting it up. Do some of the criminal element go there? Maybe yes, but not that I've seen and not in any way that would make me feel threatened. Besides, everyone has a right to go to any establishment without fear of being murdered; whethere one is 'innocent' or not should not matter. I will continue to patronize Woody's and hope for these young punks' speedy arrests. Our island will not go back to normal unless we who are normal continue to behave normally while taking actions when we can to prevent such violence.

But we are thinking we can get injured or killed faster here then outside Bermuda and we along with everyone else too is tired of our families in body bags. This is almost a daily process. To the point where we aren't even surprised.So yeah, four people arrested. nine times out of ten.

      after shootings at the movie theatre, devonshire etc. we should all come to the conclusion that horrible and horrific things can happen anywhere. The low lifes do not care anymore. if a person can catch a jetski to go kill i dont think he would hesitate to do it a upscale place.

    A: Woodys needs to stop catering to MOB.
    They might be cool there but they are attracting the violence. Freddy? Nuff said.

    B:I was there visiting and tried to get some other tourists/visitors to come and they were told to stay away from that place. When I went it was nothing but MOB and freaking rap music being played for 10 seconds a song by some retard wanna be DJ. Bring back the Bob Marley music to calm them down and or drive them away.

    C: The police should know that this is a known hang out for MOB so why don't they keep a few patrol cars in the area in the area on the weekends? Maybe around Boaz Island and somewhere on the bridge.

    PREVENTION! You Keystone cops are daft! After the fact is too late.

      Unfortunately, MOB is the least of our worries, and that's sad to say. We should really be looking at parkside and who they are connected to. Any convictions from parkside? I'm not sure, but I am sure there's a bunch in witness protection, and a bunch of convictions from other sides. One thing I've noticed, most other gangs have some sort of code or morality, as hard as that is to believe, parkside is ruthless to say the least. I dont support any gang but if parkside is allowed to gain a strong foothold, we are in serious trouble. FYI they're famous for extortion.

This island has changed for the worst and its because it was allowed to.

    Ill repeat myself for the 100th time after the several first shootings when the man got shot after intruders bursted in his house when he and his friends were playing poker and shot him, THE GOVERNMENT should have set up a special task force to eradicate these guys and make serious arrests, even if it means going house to house pulling these guys out of their moms houses starting from St.georges and work your way up to Dockyard. Being that this is a small island we could have things back to normal very soon.
    What has anyone really done so far?
    People blogged that it would infringe on liberties and so on,?? These guys loose all their liberties once the shootings started.
    Had that machine gun have worked that guy caould have killed ten people that night if he wanted.
    This is not the 80's and 90's anymore the mindset now is a lot more coldblodded, these are not guys who just want to steal your bike for some weekend fun anymore.
    If these guys are being a terror to the community at large think what their households have to go through, a lot of these guys threaten and keep their family in a hostage situation there a lot of women going through some crazy stuff.

    Hope the day comes when Bda is ready to stump out this madness once and for all, i miss the old Bda,
    And a lot of people do that is why we are so damn angry Wayne.

      @ SIGH - I totally agree with you. If we really analyze the situation here, many things just don't had up, which leaves room for speculation, concern, and worry. The police have the right to take the proper proceedings when these shootings happen. But what is it they do? Nothing, they come on the media and act dense. If they really wanted to know whose shooting who. They know who sits out on court street selling drugs right under their noses, go get some warrants and go to the houses of all those individuals involved. Then there will be some real evidence coming up. Until then, this ignorance that is taking place will continue, because the authority of the land have the power to seise it all, but choose to do otherwise. Which causes the innocent to suffer for the guilty.

    Someone should have ran his stupid behind over when the gun jammed! I really do not get it either. Why are they so hell bent on ruining this island that they have to live in? Bermuda is small already - why involve yourself in gang warfare and have to watch your back everywhere you go and only be "allowed" to go to certain places? Who wants to live like that? Is it really worth it?

    When is BPS going to get serious about this problem? This is not just bad for tourists but more importantly locals. This is exactly why I do not go to certain spots because of things like this. We need more search warrants executed, we need more previous convicts randomly checked up on, more sting operations, do something! We are only so big, we know who is involved. Be proactive! Make these bars and clubs where large numbers of people attend have up to date cameras/security.

    Also you mothers, girlfriends, friends and relatives of these little hoodlums need to stop enabling. What goes around comes around, if you have knowledge of, or helping these little boys carry out these criminal acts don't be surprised when it comes back to you. He shoots someone down, then don't be surprised if he gets shot down too! Don't cry in the newspaper and say you had no clue he was in a gang. BPS and the courts need to get tougher on this - enough is enough.

    Are we still calling them Machine Guns last time I checked, this is not the 1950's. I think its called an Automatic Assault Rifle. It doesn't look like they know how to handle it. Assault rifles are categorized in between light machine guns, which are intended more for sustained automatic fire in a light support role, and submachine guns, which fire a pistol cartridge rather than a rifle cartridge.
    So we call them Automatic Assault Rifles.

    If this so called gun (if it was real) jammed it probably was buried somewhere. If you don't keep a gun clean it will not work as good. Soil gets in or even the saltwater element (rust) corrosion. I would take a metal detector to the Spanish Point area or some of the arrested yards and do a check. I would also start to trail these guys and watch where they are going and what they are doing doing. You may find out where they are burying the guns. Also, I hope they didn;t just arrest the same "guys" (like P and J); you really think thse guys are doing this themselves???? Of course not, they have soldiers that are waiting to make an impression.

    Honestly... As a citizen of Bermuda I can't say that I feel comfortable with the police that are in authority in the land of Bermuda. This is their personal playground with these gangs. I can't fathom how Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro could stand there and say that he is unsure or can't say for sure that it is this 'parkside gang' that is committing these senseless acts of violence.

    Majority of the people in this country know that parkside have been committing most of the deaths by guns in this country. It is safe to say that they want to full control of the streets in all parts of Bermuda. Therefore, they take their dominant demeanours and use their guns to control the island. Behind every street male there is a bigger person above that they answer too. Clearly this is organised crime here in Bermuda.

    Time to expose them all before it's too late. I mean, face it people, no on wants to believe that the authority of the land might have something to do with all the gun murders in this country. Mainly because the POLICES job it to serve and protect the citizens of the land.

    It is something bigger going on. This is not just a Bermuda thing, this is a world wide epidemic. In most cases the powers that be are orchestrating certain events to create fear and control the mass. Election is coming up and this could be a scare tactic by the ruling party. Also they are known use P R C tactics. Create a Problem, Get a reaction from the majority of the population to clamp down. So the ruling party finds a solution. In the mean time their rights are being stripped away and the constitution ignored. Soon the regiments going to be patrolling. I saw this coming about a decade ago. I also believe that plp is being used to destroy the island. I's just too obvious. Its been one Scandal after another with them. IB and Tourism are just political footballs to temper with the psyche of the population. The reason why I say this is because all Western countries have been on a plan since the 70's called Agenda 21 which involves De-industrializing all the countries that had major industries. Bermuda is not immune from this.

    The only way to fix this is to empower our minds and be self sufficient , not relying on Government. Stop giving Government so much power.

    Also it doesn't matter if it is plp ubp or oba. They are all controlled by the same entity. They just have different masks and slogans. Its all a game and you have been fooled all these years.

    The Government has no choice but to burrow money from major off shore corporations, while the economic hit men (Consultants) come in to make more deals and give more toxic advice. The Interests is the only thing that gets payed off by the taxpayers. The Principle keeps rolling. As this continues, the island will be sold piece by piece to Lendees as the debt spirals out of control.
