SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 10:15AM: Premier Paula Cox is urging Bermudians to come together to support the family of a man who was killed yesterday.
The 31-year-old was shot inside Jason’s Barbershop on North Shore Road, Pembroke at 5:20pm yesterday.
Assistant Commissioner of Police David Mirfield told the media two men on a motorcycle rode up to the shop. One got off the bike and shot the victim.
Witnesses described hearing six shots.
Today, Premier Cox said: “This tragedy can only mean sorrow for another family in this community and our first thoughts must be for them. I encourage calm and restraint in the wake of this mindless act and urge the community to unite in its support of the family, the Police and each other."
National Security Minister Wayne Perinchief added: “We have seen in these last few months how important witnesses and community involvement can be to solving crime.
“I urge anyone with information that might assist the Police investigation to come forward."
The Premier concluded: "However and wherever we worship today, let us all spare a moment to remember those affected by this tragedy and encourage those who can assist the Police to do so."
Yesterday, Mr Mirfield said: “Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen two men on a motorcycle in the North Shore Road, Pembroke area in the vicinity of Jason's Barbershop around the time of the incident to contact the Serious Crime Unit on 295-0011 or the independent & confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.”
