Update: The police confirmed that no one was injured. They said, “The Bermuda Police Service can confirm that at 1:10pm today, we received a report of a firearm incident which occurred at Divots Bar & Grill located at Belmont Hills in Warwick, We can confirm that a firearm has been recovered and our forensic support unit is presently at this location processing the scene. No one has been injured as a result of this incident.”

Update: Live video replay is below

Update: The police said, “ Around 1:10 p.m. today, Tuesday, 10th May 2022, Police received numerous 911 calls regarding a male with a firearm entering Divots Restaurant, Belmont Drive, Warwick.

“The suspect brandished the weapon inside the restaurant but upon attempting to leave, became involved in a struggle with patrons during which he dropped the firearm.

“The firearm has been recovered by police.

“He fled the scene and made good his escape by running across the Belmont Hills golf course.

“There have been no reports of any injured persons at this time.

“The suspect is described as a brownskin male approximately 6ft, dressed in blue jeans and blue/grey/ white jacket wearing a dark colored helmet.

“The search for the suspect continues at this time and anyone with any information on this matter is asked to call 211, the main police number, 295-0011, Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 or, share the information with a police officer you’re comfortable speaking with.”

There is also what appears to be footage of the incident circulating quite widely on messaging apps and U.S. based social media websites.

Update 9.30pm: Shadow National Security Minister Michael Dunkley said, “This is one time that I am thankful for social media. I usually don’t appreciate when videos displaying anti-social behaviours and violence are shared, but this time it may be very beneficial. It is my hope the perpetrator in the Divot’s incident is caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

“Enough is enough. The violence is too frequent and wrecking many families in our community. Once again, people have been left traumatised by this senseless attempted act in broad daylight; which could have had a dastardly outcome.

“I applaud the quick and heroic action of the gentleman at the restaurant. This brave action coupled with video evidence from the scene should help bring the perpetrator before the courts in short order!”

Update 9.41pm: The BPS said, “The Bermuda Police Service is aware of video and still images of today’s firearms incident at Divots grill and bar being circulated on social media.

“We are pleading with the public to not share these images and should you receive them please delete them from your devices. Sharing these videos and still images places the safety and well-being of the individual depicted in danger. We are appealing for your cooperation in that regard.

“Sharing these images may also hamper the investigation into this matter.

“Again, please do not share these videos and instead delete them should you receive them. We are also appealing for anyone with information on this incident to please share that information with us by calling 211, 295-0011, Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 or speak with a police officer with whom you are familiar.”

Note: Our initial title said ‘shooting’ but it appears that there was not actually a ‘shooting,’ so we amended it to be more accurate!

    Bermuda is booming all around..
    Where’s the egomeir!!

  2. question says:

    Good to see Lawrence Scott has things all under control.

    • Frank Ocean says:

      Unless we like in a totalitarian society or the government has the ability to predict crimes before they happen- what do you honestly expect the minister to do besides be there once the crime has occurred. They can only act on the information and evidence that is provide and when little is there or not shared what can they do?

      • question says:

        Crime is out of control. The previous Police Commissioner was drummed out because he pointed out inadequacies in the Police force and was prevented from addressing them. Among the two previous Mins for National Security, one resigned for being at an alleged illegal party organised by another PLP Minister, and the other resigned (or was fired) because Burt seems to be a megalomaniac.
        30-6. Burt has total and complete control. The PLP have been in power, most of the time, for a generation. Economically, the country has been spiralling continuously downwards for the last 20 years, other than an uptick during 2015-2017.
        The government can’t say they aren’t responsible for this. They are a disaster.

  3. Not so sure says:

    Witnesses please come forward. Oh yeah, the brave guy in the video is now in danger because he is a witness and people know. Who is coming forward?

    Let’s pass a law or two, life behind bars no parole for anyone with gun, murder or not. Anyone who turns in a gun, reward: $100,000.

    • chipper says:

      Great idea- who’s got $100,000 to pay reward for one gun? Lol

  4. Make it sting says:

    For the taxpayers and officials trying hard to rebuild a product that is worthy of marketing to the world, some young person is undermining the master plan. It has long been time to put things in place to deter this antisocial behavior.
    All the politicians, the judges, the lawyers and some parents need to step up and do what’s best for Bermuda. We all have to live here, and what we do today will create the tomorrow we live in. All antisocial behavior needs to be punished severely! Not with soft time, but with hard time. Punishment that strikes fear into antisocial advocates. Time to grow a backbone and do what’s in the best interest of Bermuda. Stamp out the stupidness

    Time to get real!!

  5. Make it sting says:

    Hard times create strong people,
    Strong people create good times.
    Good time create soft/weak people,
    Weak people create HARD TIMES.

    I THINK WE ARE IN A CYCLE.

  6. Yes come to Bermuda and witness all the crimes NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
