Coco Reef Resorts was dotted with police officers this afternoon after unconfirmed reports of a firearm.

Officers stood guard at the entrance to the Bermuda College campus and Coco Reef.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a man was chased on to the property with a man armed with a gun.

But Inspector Troy Glasgow of the Public Protection Department wouldn’t give away too much information.

He did confirm the incident happened on Coco Reef’s property.

No one has been arrested.

“Shortly after 2pm, police responded to an incident where a person called for our assistance.

“We responded immediately to the scene and everything ended up OK.”

Asked to confirm exactly what happened, Insp Glasgow said: “While it’s very early, there was a person that felt he was under threat so we responded.”

Asked to confirm the presence of a firearm, he said: “It’s very early so I don’t want to get specific.

“As you know, we do act as if  a worst case scenario to ensure the safety of the public.

“I can’t verify or deny the use of a firearm.”

Insp Glasgow said no one has been arrested in connection with the incident.

He also said the police presence didn’t disrupt business at Coco Reef this afternoon.

Asked about CCTV footage, Insp Glasgow said: “As in any active investigation, we take advantage of any opportunity to gather evidence.

“I would like to thank the members of this facility and the public.

He asked members of the public who may have seen anything suspicious in the area of Coco Reef to call the police or CrimeStoppers.
