    He must have thought he was the NFL player Plaxico Burress. Remember he shot himself in the foot with his own gun he was carrying in a NYC nightclub. How the hell do you break in someone’s house and shoot yourself. He deserved to be shot only not by himself. SMH

  22. Shag says:

    There is a god in heaven

  23. Average Bermuda says:

    He is by far one of the world’s dumbest criminals…Bermuda is sooo BIG you think they wasn’t going to figure out that gun shot wound came from that incident. BDA police aren’t that slow. Get your life together Criminal Activity is not for you.

  24. Davie Kerr says:

    They do say that what goes around comes around, but it doesn’t usually come around so quickly!
    I’m tempted to agree with Double Time’s comment about “do 10 years if you help us catch your mate or 20 if you don’t.” However, knowing the local judicial system, he’ll probably get 6 months probation; or maybe 9 if the judge wants to be REALLY hard on him…

  25. Gotham says:

    Bernews, is this incident in anyway related to the armed assault on a lady alone by herself at a home in Tucker’s Town in the early morning hours a few weeks ago? Hopefully the pressure will be on this guy to fess up everything he knows.

  26. Coffee says:

    Is he dead yet ?

  27. Come Correct says:

    Just curious, will he be charge with grievous bodily harm?

  28. Bermuda Boy says:

    Looking for the other person, his backside would have sat in the waiting room until he told who it was. If this is wrong, Who GAF.

  29. Um read it ALL now….

  30. Alan S. says:

    Self inflicted wounds like this could, one day, result in extreme collateral damage .

  31. X man says:

    The serious question is : how many illegal guns are out there ? and were are they ?

  32. Seen it All says:

    Talk about shooting yourself in you foot!! LOL!! JOKERS!

  33. Clear View says:

    Can’t wait for the name to be made public, hurry up and charge him.

  34. JUNK YARD DOG says:

    Why should my tax dollars go to pay for a criminal to stay in jail
    at $80,000. per year they should pay the bill at $219.00 per day.

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Why should our tax dollars pay his medical bill? You don’t suppose he had a job with insurance do you? And how about all of the costs to process his sorry backside through the courts now?

      Tens of thousands. Money that could either not be spent or spent on something or somebody much more productive.

  35. #LOFL says:

    ‘barrass …lock his tail up!
