A MAN who was shot multiple times during an argument in front of his home died in hospital early yesterday morning.
The shooting took place shortly after 11pm off Blue Hill Road South. The man’s death brought the country’s murder count to 67 for the year, according to The Tribune’s records.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Stephen Dean said police have little information on the homicide and are appealing to members of the public for help.
“The man was involved in an argument with another man in front of a home that led to him being shot,” ACP Dean said.
“The man was rushed to the hospital where he was listed as stable, however he died of his injuries early Wednesday morning.”
ACP Dean said police have no one in custody but are following some leads.
The homicide came hours after a man was shot dead in Freeport on Tuesday, pushing the homicide count on the island of Grand Bahama to 13 this year.
In that incident, police received reports of gunshots heard in the Fawcett Lane area and on arrival discovered the lifeless body of a man on the side of the road.
Inspector Terecita Pinder reported that the victim had sustained gunshot wounds to the body.
Anyone with information on any of these homicides is asked to contact police at 911 or 919, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 328-TIPS.
