A 20-year-old Pembroke man, formally charged with attempted murder and using a firearm to commit an indictable offence, remains on remand at Bermuda’s maximum security prison because he was unable to meet bail.

Kyari Flood was charged last week on March 27, three days after the most recent shooting incident that occurred on Parsons Road in Pembroke, that landed the victim in hospital with a gunshot wound in his arm that required surgery.

A spokesman said: “He was subsequently detained and later discharged.

“Quick action by police led to the arrest of a  20-year-old Pembroke man, immediately after the shooting.
“Kyari Flood was granted bail with strict conditions by the courts. However, he has so far not met his bail conditions and remains at the Westgate Correctional Facility.
“The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank the public for their assistance with the investigation into this matter and which aided in a quick arrest.
“This is an example of the success that can be achieved when we work together,” he added.
“That said, the investigation continues and we request that anyone with information, please contact Detective Sergeant Jason Smith of the Serious Crimes Unit, (SCU), on 717-0864, or the SCU main line, 247-1218.”
