Police today confirmed the identity of murder victim Danshun Swann, 25, who succumbed to fatal injuries sustained in what was described as a “large fight” outside Southampton Rangers Sports Club shortly after midnight.
Speaking at a news conference held this afternoon, Acting Detective Jason Smith said: “Over 20 males were estimated to be involved in the incident, which spilled on to South Road.
“During the melee Danshun was stabbed in the abdomen. He was rushed to hospital by a private vehicle but later pronounced dead.”
When contacted by Bermuda Real, area MP Zane DeSilva said: “It was sad to hear of yet another one of our young men have been lost to violence.
“My thoughts and prayers go out to family.
“I’m very saddened that we have had another death in our constituency and in particular at or near Southampton Rangers, as the President and his committee have been working so hard to develop and promote programs that will benefit and bring the community together.
