Nassau, Bahamas — Gunshots were fired and tonight in the midst of a Hurricane watch, a grandmother was shot dead, raising the murder count in the country to near one hundred for the year.

Loud screams could be heard outside the green wooden home in the nation’s capital where police have recorded just over an hour ago [around 10pm] the murder of a 76-year-old grandmother, who was shot dead as she lay sleeping safe in her bed on Eneas Street – just off East Street north.

The area has had a number of murder incidents recently and, while many expected a quiet night for police, Rwandan styled terrorists were still wreaking havoc on the society. This evening’s incident reveals a serious and vexing problem is brewing here in the country when it comes to crime and violence.

Sources on the ground in the area tell us that the elderly grandmother was resting in her bed fast asleep after a long day, when a gunman entered the home after chasing another man on foot who ran into the residence.

We can report, as the gunman entered the home, he opened fire in the house, attempting to shoot the young man in the chase, but missed and his flying bullets penetrated a bedroom wall hitting the 76-year-old woman, kiling her at the scene.

Detectives we can tell you are at this hour combing the crime scene and gathering evidence.

Police we are told are on a hunt for the gunman and are following several leads.

All was expected to be a quiet night , filled with prayers and intercession, however, residents and an entire community in the Eneas Street area are drowning in sorrow.

We report yinner decide!
