Police Search Underway After Incident In Paget

March 4, 2013

[Updated] Police officers are presently on scene in Paget this afternoon [Mar 4], with the details surrounding the incident still unclear but understood to involve a search for a person who is thought to have been chasing another person with what appeared to look like a firearm.

There are multiple police cars present in the area of the grounds of Coco Reef and Bermuda College, with some of the officers armed.

Unofficial reports do not suggest anyone has been injured, and there are no indications of this [such as crime scene tape].

Police Media Manager Dwayne Caines said that further information will be provided later today, and we will update as able.

Update 3.23pm: Business seems to be getting conducted as normal, we have seen a delivery van and taxi come through thus far. We are expecting a formal police statement on the matter shortly.

Update 3.36pm: Inspector Troy Glasgow said they responded as there was a man who “felt he was under threat.” When asked was a firearm involved, the Inspector said they cannot “verify or deny the use of a firearm.”

No one has been arrested at this stage the police said, and also noted they “in no way disrupted the activities of this facility,” and thanked everyone at both facilities for their assistance.

Inspector Glasgow asked for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area of Coco Reef at around 2pm today to contact them.

  1. what?? says:

    You got to be kidding me…

  2. Family Man says:

    Its amazing what your kids can learn at Bermuda College.

  3. Dantes Inferno says:

    Thankfully there is no one on the island for spring break.

    • Did he do it? says:

      Not true! There was about 15 spring break students outside waiting for the island party bus while all this was happening!

  4. Guests arrived today says:

    It was nice when my guests arrived at the hotel and they were greeted by police. Embarrassing but better safe than sorry.

  5. Evelyn Barnett says:

    @ Family Man. It’s amazing what you can learn from the truth! The incident had NOTHING to do with Bermuda College, other than the fact that the properties’ boundaries adjoin one another… In addition, faculty and students are on mid-semester break.

  6. kitty kat says:

    ‘…very early in the investigation…’ Caines and Glasgow have that phrase down pat….

    • Nuffin but de Truth! says:

      what did you expect…they are so used to using it due to certain @$$hole$ on the Island that need to be dealt with in the severest of ways!

  7. No longer surprised. Tensions are most high and there doesn’t seem to be a fix to this ever growing threat of gun violence. Bermudians are up in arms with one another and it needs to stop. It is doing none of us any good. We are to quick to judge but don’t like to listen. How are we to get ahead if we continuously pull one another down and attack and kill one another. And we wonder why the script has been flipped and again no one listens. We are in dier straits. More to come….stay tuned as it is out of control. All the talk is suggestive but the walk is very much stagnant. Which way do we turn now.

  8. Sir George Somers says:

    Someone got a better grade than someone else, and he was vexed!

  9. M.P. MOUNTBATTEN JP says:

    It appeared to look like a fire-arm . It might well have been a tire iron .

  10. Mystique says:

    It’s a mere matter of time before gun violence directly affects “mainstream” society that thinks the violence doesn’t involve or affect them! A hotel?

  11. Truth is killin' me... says:

    It’s a b!tch when you have to run into a hotel to get away from someone running after you with a gun. Sounds like a great way to get more tourists to the island! Sort it out people!!!

  12. Y-Gurl says:

    Another spotty faced youth evades the great BPS

  13. Keepin' it Real...4Real! says:

    you’ve heard the saying that “the innocent will suffer for the guilty” well once this s#!t hits mainstream…trust me….mainstream will hit back…you will be stereotyped and Executed, with out a bat of an eye…lots of mommas will cry blood for their little angels. Tired Tired TIRED!!

    • smh says:

      well the OBA needs to do something!!!!
      they just p#$$y foot around!!! Dunkley DO SOMETHING!!!!

      • Orbit says:

        Don’t blame the OBA, blame the Police and the Governor for not doing anything. Straight! and what was the PLP doing during the last 14 years?! Oh ya…..p#$$y footing around. Fall back!

  14. Baker says:

    Appeared to be a firearm? It could have been a Pop Tart. Thank you for the clarification Mrs. James Barnette. Too often some of us run our mouths before the brain goes into gear.

  15. backbush says:

    may i ask are we going keep blaming each party for this yes we put oba in so we have deal with the lies and the good no party alone is going to stop this crime
