Wed, 2020-03-04

At around 10:30 pm on Tuesday 3-Mar-2020, the Bermuda Police Service received several reports of gunshots in the Jones Village, Warwick area.

Out of an abundance of caution, officers conducted extensive door to door enquiries and searches in the Jones Village and surrounding areas.

However, they found no forensic or other evidence to confirm that a firearm had been discharged.

Further, checks at KEMH did not indicate anyone was being treated for gunshot wounds.

Checks of CCTV in the area also showed nothing to confirm a firearms incident.

We would like to remind members of the public, if they have any information regarding illegal firearms, to please contact the main police number, 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers Hotline, 800-8477.
