The Shadow Minister of National Security, Ben Smith, echoed the Minister’s remarks on the latest shooting incident that occurred in broad daylight at the junction of Court and Eliot Streets on Tuesday (March 17).

The One Bermuda Alliance MP said “this is beyond belief” at a time when “Bermuda faces one of its biggest ever challenges”.

“It is unbelievable that people engage in these acts that add an extra layer of anxiety on our already anxious population and even more strain on our emergency services,” said Mr Smith.

“COVID-19 is a threat like we have never seen before in Bermuda. This is no time for acts of violence against each other, it is a time to work together with a common aim – to help Bermuda weather this storm.

“I always condemn all acts of violence, but given the situation we find ourselves in today, this is beyond belief,” he added.

“This must stop – and we must do all we can to help the police find the culprits as soon as possible.”

As of midnight there was still no word on the extent of the injuries sustained by the two men who were injured.

Police say reports indicate several shots were fired.

The investigation into this latest incident continues.
