Bain Town, Nassau Bahamas: The war on New Providence has broken out once again as a hail of bullets on a crowded Augusta Street in the Bain Town area early Saturday morning, claimed the life of three more young persons.
Two of the three victim’s bullet riddled bodies laid dead in the road as police detectives carried out their investigations into the country’s latest triple homicide. The victims were two males in their early thirties and a female in her early twenties. Police described the bodies of the victims as horrific and called for the community to assist them them in solving this latest incident.
Eyewitnesses claim that the three victims were exiting a nightclub in the area and was about to enter a gray Chevy Impala (registration Number 205615), when gunmen believe to be carrying machine guns opened fire on the three, releasing a hail of bullets on them. The young woman clanged to life but succumbed later to her injuries at the Princess Margaret Hospital, where she sustained more than eight gunshot wounds about her body.
Earlier this week Police discovered the charred remains of a man, burning in the back trunk of a vehicle that was set ablaze just off the Cowpen Road area earlier in the week. And in less then 24 hours detectives again responded to a home invasion in the Jacaranda Street area of Pinewood. There gunmen opened fire on a male and his girlfriend as they slept in their bedroom. The killers reportedly kicked down the door of the home and opened fire on the couple, killing the male and wounding the female.
Police are still without any leads in all five murders and cannot say whether any of the incidents are related. Police are crying for the public’s help in solving these latest homicides. “…we are loosing our soul as a people,” Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Hulan Hanna told reporters.
