Update 2.37pm: A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is investigating a confirmed firearms incident which occurred shortly before eight a.m. on Sunday 16th February.

“Officers were called out to Field View Lane in Pembroke following several reports of multiple gunshots being heard in the area.

“Reports are two men rode into the area on a motorcycle. One of them got off the bike, ran to one of the nearby Bermuda Housing Corporation apartments and fired several shots into one of the units.

“The suspects then made good their escape.

“Upon arrival officers recovered forensic evidence which confirmed a firearm was discharged outside the residence. There have been no reports of any injuries.

“This is the fifth firearms incident in the last two weeks and there is growing concern over the indiscriminate nature of these crimes which could have resulted in loss of life of individuals who were not the intended target.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Inspector Kenten Trott of the Serious Crime unit on 717-2345, the main police number, 295-0011 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477.”

    I thought they were tooting their own horn claiming firearms incidents were down because of their actions.

    • They should’ve just keep their mouths shut.

    • Question says:

      Er, the person grandstanding about 2019 Crime statistics a month before the end of 2019 was Caines.
      He was telling us how Pastor Bean had stopped all the gang violence.

  2. becareful of the truth says:

    What actions? The Police and Leroy Bean have done absolutely zero to stop shootings as they claim.
    Please stop taking credit when you cant control the doings of others. These guys are laughing at you because of your inability to do as you claim.
    It would be best if you just keep quiet.

  3. Trump supporter says:

    Guess the minister and pastor needs another raise.

  4. Oh,Lsee now says:

    I would hate for anyone to think that if the bps or Wayne Caines had never mentioned any stats these incidents may never have happened,um life doesn’t work like that.
