Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press is reporting a second day of shooting now underway in the Bain Town community. Reports reaching our desk confirm just moments ago there was yet another shoot-out near the Poinciana Drive section of the community.
BP advises residents to avoid the area and persons living in the community to stay indoors.
Bahamas Press can confirm shortly after 9am yesterday, a young man was attacked execution style with a high powered weapon by a group of men on Augusta street in the same community.
Police however caught up with the shooters in the Strachan’s Corner area just off East Street, which resulted in a shootout with officers. One of the men was shot in the leg by police and is in custody.
Police recovered on the scene a high powered AK-47 weapon and a handgun. The AK-47s are weapons now being used in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. How they ended up on the streets of the capital is just mind-boggling.
