Man Killed In Double Shooting

A MAN is dead and another was taken to hospital after a double shooting on Friday.

Shortly after 2am, a man was walking on the eastern side of the clinic on Baillou Hill Road when he saw another man being chased by a group of men, who shot both of them before running away. Emergency services were called and attempted to revive one of the injured victims, but were unsuccessful.

One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not released his identity.

The second victim was taken to hospital, treated for a minor injury and discharged.

Police have taken three men into custody in connection with this incident.

The killing marks the 56th murder for the year, according to The Tribune’s records.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call 919 or 911.

Come on Bahamians! How many times do you need to be warned? Don't leave your homes... EVER! Our streets/beaches/secluded islands are not safe!

if all three are fun d guilty, give them the death penalty. That would be three less pieces of human garbage to worry about.

Or do what seems to usually work, /releases their names and faces them give them bail. automatic death sentence.

Correct me if the info is wrong but wasn’t there zero murders in July 2016, one in July 2017 and now how many so far this July? Or was it June with the low count.

This is just the beginning. The youth are lost. Too many single mothers trying to raise men. Men just making babies and not being involved in their kids lives. No jobs, or dead end jobs. People are simply not making enough money to survive.
