NASSAU, BAHAMAS – One man is in custody, and the firearm police believe was used in the country’s latest murder on Andros Avenue, has been removed from the streets.

The broad daylight shooting taking place just hours after the Prime Minister released new crime-fighting tactics at the weekly office of the Prime Minister press briefing.

Police were already in the area of Andros Avenue when the country’s latest homicide took place. Deputy Commissioner of Police Clayton Fernander believes that helped police to get a headstart on the investigation.

Reports are, shortly after 2pm a man, believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s, was sitting on a porch on ragged island street, when a small grey vehicle pulled up.

Just this morning the Prime Minister announced new crime-fighting initiatives to assist with the high level of crime in the country – one of those initiatives – saturated police patrols in hot spot areas and that particular initiative put into action today as an arrest was made.

Deputy Commissioner Fernander says police were looking for the alleged suspect, in his late twenties, for the past month for attempted murder.
