Two Die In Night Of Violence

TWO men were killed last night in separate incidents.

A man was shot dead last night in southern New Providence.

The victim, a 31-year-old man from Highland Drive, Summer Haven, was walking on Cambridge Lane, South Beach, when he was approached by another man and shot multiple times.

He suffered a number of wounds to his body and died at the scene.

The incident took place at about 8.30pm.

Police are seeking the driver of a black Chevy Tahoe seen fleeing the area.

In the second incident, a 25-year-old man was stabbed at about 10.35pm on Blue Hill Road, off Cowpen Road. He was taken to hospital by private car but died of his injuries.

A 22-year-old woman, of Jumbey Drive, Golden Gates, is being questioned.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call police at 919, 322-3333, the Central Detective Unit on 502-9910 or 502-9991 or Crimestoppers on 328-TIPS.

Regards of what lies this FNM regime's peddles during this General Elections campaign about how well they have managed the nation's affairs, the continued daily killings of their own citizens speaks a reality "truth" poster that they can not rip down and hide from the natives or the tourists. Is there any wonder the major hotels have banned the sale of the two daily newspapers from their hotel establishments.. Go ahead and give this failed PM and his FNM regime another fie years to waste their privileged power. on all, excepting their corporate and money friends.

I would like to see the PLP regime do better!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL.The crime will probably get worse if they get elected, and I would like to see them explain that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLP can do better and was doing better. When the PLP came to office in 2002, they instituted the very effective Urban Renewal Program that was having a major impact on the level of crimes especially in the inner city areas of NP. When the FNM won, they dismantled Urban Renewal and what happened... record levels of crime every year since they were in power. So you tell me, use your brain and tell me who's plan was actually working???

if the urban renewal project was so successful then we would still be reaping the fruits of its labor so any well thinking human being is saying that when we took the police from cleaning the peoples homes and communities the people started killing each other only when the P.L.P comes back to power and give the police back the dustpans this will stop these criminals from killing and robbing.

The FNM continues to try and evade this crime record by blaming criminal defense lawyers which is the height of stupidity. Thier only answer to crime is "Brave was 90 lawyer & 90 cause the crime". Well 90 has been locked up since 2000. How can you blame a dismal crime record on a SINGLE man who has been in prison from the PLP was in power? Unbelievable! Unthinkable!

@newcomer2012 let know the truth get in this FNM regimes even unable to get their lies straight. The arrogance in the lies and nonsense rhetoric coming from the doomed General Elections campaign of this FNM PM and his wretched moneyland oriented regime be it spoken or written in one of our now two official languages, Bahamian and Creole, should prove to any sensible thinking native that never once since 2007 has this regime spent a dollar in search of the real causes of why hundreds have been murdered under their watch.
