    HEY BYE!! I LIVE IN THIS AREA and let me tell you guys something there is nothing worse than hearing a gunshot go off and thinking that a stray bullet may have entered your home or your parents home or a neighbour, This is a constant reality that we are faced with and it is hitting home more and more every day. Although we are not caught up in gang violence the actions of those who shoot can very easy kill an innocent child, man or woman in their sleep, un beknown to the evil that is going on in the dark.
    How do we protect our house, our families?? gun fire goes off and all we can do is duck in our own house hoping and praying that the fools dont come our way or shoot our way????
    People are riddled with fear while these gangsters rome with superior technology(a gun) and cause fear in our hoods. And all we can do is hope an pray that they dont come our way???
    We as innocent LAW ABIDING CITIZENS NEED PROTECTION! Police protection is great but i would feel a hell of alot better if i had a 45 semi auto matic inorder to deal with whatever trouble rolls up in my neighbourhood looking to scare us.
    I can bet you 1000000% if these guys knew that other people have the ability to carry a weapon and fire it they would not be so hasty to ride up in a hood and open fire.
    In a world where a man has super powers and others dont then that man is superior and untouchable and would be feared…..but in a world where everybody has super powers then no one is untouchable and everyone is on equal footing.

    JUST MY THOUGHTS AFTER HEARING THE SHOT RING OFF LAST NIGHT…..ONE SHOT…..BANG!!!!!then all you hear is a bike ride off ever so comfortable, not speeding, just ride off like he just delivered a pizza, which is followed by loud frantic screams and crying by a female which sounds just like a distraught mother or a grandmother and a child is crying, people are peeking out of their window in fear, to scared to even call 911 in fear that a connection could bring a gun man to their door steps,
    no one goes to the scene where a person may or may not be dead, we just stay in our houses looking towards the screams and hoping that the police would hurry up and show, hearts is pounding, will the gun men return, fear is set in, did the gun men hit their target or did they shoot the old lady thats screaming…what do i do.. fear over rides the right thing to do, courage keeps telling you to do something, loved ones tells you to stay back dont go………..is this the life we are used to..is this what we should get use to……smh..cheekums bi

    • Oh no says:

      It is crazy. Must have been horrible last night. Thoughts and prayers are with all affected by these selfless people that dont care for themselves or anyone else. smh gee

    • Waiting for the worst says:

      i call for the legalization for responsible members of the public to be able to carry a firearm…. if these jokers know they might encounter someone else with just as much force as they intend to impose they might think twice… The police only seem to be the clean-up crew as the show up after a shooting… thier guns they wear only seem to be there to protect them and not the rest of us…

    • Daisy says:

      I totally understand where you are coming from. I’ve had two shootings (one a murder)in my neighbourhood and I’m scared to come outside at night. Every time I see a guy on a bike come off my hill I get nervous. We shouldn’t have to live like this…in constant fear. These idiots don’t realize that what they are doing affects more than the people they are shooting at.

  10. Oh no says:

    Oh dear hope she is ok soon. All this needs to stop. gosh poor lady.

  12. Bird says:

    I live close by to this road. The person they were shooting at has been in trouble all his life along with his brothers. I think the police need to take a heavy hand approach to these gangs, and show them who is boss.stop being whimps police man.

  13. Kojo says:

    We live right across the street from this incident. Luckily, we were house sitting in Somerset when this went on. Can anyone suggest an area in Bermuda where this type of thing DOESN’T occur?
