The Minister of National Security, Renee Ming expressed concern about today's shooting incident in St. George's saying, “Regrettably we had a firearms incident in the midst of our Country's fight against the latest Covid-19 outbreak.
“My thoughts are with the victim, his family and everyone who has been impacted by this act of anti-social behaviour. Gun violence has no place in our neighbourhoods, and this incident is extremely concerning, particularly because our people are already weary and anxious at having to deal with the current pandemic challenges we face."
Minister Ming continued, “I have been updated about the shooting by the Bermuda Police Service, and I am encouraging anyone who has any information about this incident to please share what you know with the police.
“The public can be reassured that the Gang Violence Reduction Team is available to offer assistance.
"As a community cannot allow senseless acts of violence to become our norm; we are better together.”
