Police Appeal Following Firearm Incidents

March 12, 2024 | 5 Comments

Commissioner of Police Darrin Simons urged the public to come forward with any information regarding recent firearms incidents.

Commissioner Simons said, “The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] is appealing for the public to provide any information they may have regarding recent firearms incidents in our community. When we work together, the evidence of our success is clear.

“Information provided by members of the public resulted in arrested suspects and recovered evidence for two recent firearms incidents. Thankfully, neither of these resulted in injury.

“Early this past Sunday morning, officers attended a confirmed shooting outside a popular establishment on Court Street, Pembroke. A 38-year-old man sustained multiple gunshot wounds. His injuries are not considered life threatening but he remains in hospital.

“No one called the police to report this incident. A police officer on duty at the Hamilton Police Station happened to hear the gunshots and alerted colleagues.

“Early indications are that the rapid response by officers and their life-saving actions may well have prevented a more tragic outcome.

“It is understandable that residents would feel some unease in light of these brazen acts of criminality.

“I wish to assure the public, the Bermuda Police Service remains unrelenting in our efforts at making Bermuda safer.

“There is now a heightened presence on the streets with officers from Community Policing redeployed to general patrol duties until the end of April. That redeployment is in addition to stepped up enforcement activity by the Gang Unit, the Police Support Unit, and the Roads Policing Unit.

“However, we also need you to do your part by reporting criminal activity that may be taking place in your neighbourhoods, or that you are otherwise aware of.”

    It happened 25 yards from the police station but you need the public to assist you with investigation. But tell the public not to show the video lol. So you want help but not really because you have no intention of solving anything. All they have to do is ask the victim who was coming to buy drugs from him because that guy clearly set him up

    why does it take a shooting for police to monitor the dangerous area?

      Why do you think the front of Spinning Wheel is a dangerous area?

      I drive on Elliott Street across Court Street almost every day and I drive up Tills Hill and along Court Street almost every weekend. I have never felt in danger. I have even been known to go into Spinning Wheel for a beer in my younger days.

        “Why do you think the front of Spinning Wheel is a dangerous area?”

        ….because we haven’t been living under a rock for the past 50 years.

        Lmao you’re such a liar and you make such crazy comments. Who doesn’t know court street is a bad area? Because you drive through there that makes it safe lol. Because you went in spinning wheel once 50 years ago means it’s safe lol. Cars were driving through when he was getting shot so what’s your point. This is why crime and gangs are out of hand because your generation turns a blind eye to it
