Six Injured In Three Separate Shooting Incidents

Police are investigating after six people were injured in three separate shooting incidents hours apart.

In the first incident, shortly after 7pm on Wednesday, four men were in a vehicle on Johnson Terrace, Johnson Road, when two armed men exited a blue vehicle and opened fire on them. The four men were injured and transported to hospital where they are listed in stable condition.

In the second incident, just before 8pm, a man was walking on East Street and McCullough Corner when the occupants of a champagne coloured vehicle opened fire on him, and he was injured. He is now in hospital in stable condition.

In the third incident, which took place around midnight on Thursday, three men and two women were at a business on Midshipmen Road in Grand Bahama with an illegal firearm when it reportedly discharged and one of the women was hit in the chest. She was taken to hospital and is in a serious but stable condition.

Police are appealing to anyone with information to contact the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991/2, Crime stoppers at 328-TIPS (8477) or the nearest police station.

Too many and on the upswing. It almost seems to have become an acceptable pastime. Good thing we have such a highly visible police presence in Nassau and other Islands.

Damn fools with firearms. Stupidity with an uneducated finger on the trigger of a lethal weapon and a brain not developed enough to understand the repercussions of their actions.

Are we talking about the police or the civilians?

Would really like to know how many "shot spotter" incidents would occur in any given day/week in Nassau ...... MONS or COP should inform the public

Shotspotter sounded like a good thing but I'm wondering. The technology is perfect for remote areas where no one is likely to have heard the shot. But in Nassau where 1000 people crammed into a neighbourhood can hear the shots and tell you exactly where it came from...I'm beginning to wonder if we were oversold.
