A motorcyclist crashed into a vehicle shortly after 12 midnight on Gladstone Road. The cyclist died on the scene. BP can confirm a gang of motorcyclists were in the area overtaking cars as they headed south bound in a mad race on Gladstone.

In another incident a young man was struck by a vehicle that failed to stop. The young man was hit while walking in the area of a cemetary in Fox Hill, shortly after 1.00am this morning. The man died on the scene.

  • i just want to know how many non gang and drug related murders there have been? At least where the victim was not part of either of those.
    Then lets break it down to remove all murders by lovers/spouses/exes.
    Then we will see where we really are with violent crime.

    • Yeah newsman, thats what the Police should do. It would calm the fears of many Bahamians believing that innocent people are being killed. Just about all these murders are done by retalation of other offences where the culprits both are known to police. FIX THE COURT SYSTEMS AND INSPIRE THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE

  • I agree with radar. Why not add all the murders for the past decade. wow.

  • Seriously Why not just account for the Murders in 2010. The Journalism is a little suspect. The sensationalism is not needed just the facts and stats for the year.

  • media

    They say it is 70. We know it is more than that.

    Nobody is interested in how many murders happened since 2009, just keep track of 2010. Im confused , what is the count for this year?

  • charles

    we need to turn in our family and friends who have weapons NOW! that the problem nobody wants to do THE RIGHT THING…come on rodney you know people all over black village where your university is that carrin guns, take them in, clean up the streets

  • When we got American cops here in the Bahamas? 😀

    • Yeah BP, what’s with the pics that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the story??? And what’s with this arbitrary “since 2009” murder count? Do murders from 1998 not count, what about 2005? We all know the murder rate is too high. Stick to the news and forget the sensationalism. Oh and please continue to improve on the grammar.

        And if you would read you would note the photo does indicate “FILE PHOTO”. READ BAHAMAS READ!
