Two die in Saturday night New Providence shootings

TWO MEN have been killed in separate Saturday night shootings in New Providence.

In the first incident around 7.30pm, police report that a man walked out of a bar on Kemp Road when a male armed with a handgun accosted and shot him before fleeing on foot. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Just after 9pm, a man at Sunshine Park is reported to have become involved in an altercation with two males that resulted in him being shot. The victim was transported to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police say they are following "some significant leads" in this incident.

Investigations are ongoing and an island-wide manhunt for the suspects is underway. The killings take the country's murder count for 2015 to 121 according to The Tribune's records, two short of the total for last year.

This country is in decline and headed to hell in a hand basket. This is what happens when those that govern are more concerned with their bank balance than actually governing. If these kleptocrates win the next election this country will never recover. This government is the worst in history, we need a modern day Woods Rodgers to run these pirates.

Oh but Mother Pratt says we shouldn't be making political capital out of murder statistics!! Of course she will say that now that the PLP are actually in power and have to come up with a solution. Bunch of useless hypocrites! This administration is as clueless as the last in terms of solving this dreadful situation.
