Nassau, Bahamas - Police on New Providence are investigating a shooting incident Sunday, 10th February, 2019, which has left an adult male dead.

According to reports, shortly after 8:00pm, a man was at a business establishment on Potter’s Cay Dock, when he was approached by a male armed with a firearm, who shot him, before running away.  Emergency Medical Services Personal were called to the scene and attempted to revive the injured, but were unable to do so. He was pronounced dead at the scene.


Police, acting on information recovered two illegal firearms from the streets of New Providence, Sunday, 10th February, 2019.

Police are actively investigating this matter with a view of identifying persons who were in possession of these firearms and dangerous drugs.

Police are appealing to members of the public, who may have information that can assist with these investigations, to contact the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991/2, Crime stoppers at 328-TIPS (8477) or the nearest police station.

Investigations are ongoing.


  • Think about your safety before you leave home; make sure someone knows where you are going, who you are with and what time you are likely to return.
  • Fully charge your mobile phone and keep it with you so you can keep in contact with your friends and family and ring police should you need to.
  • Walking home in the dark is never a good idea, but if you absolutely must, try to walk with a friend, keep no busy, well-lit roads even if it means taking a longer route.
  • If you think someone is following you, go to the nearest place where there are people and ask for help, or, if you can't find somewhere or you are worried about someone's behaviour towards you in any way, call 919
  • Don't be afraid about being wrong or over-reacting; the Police would rather be called only to find that all is well, than be dealing with an incident because someone was afraid of calling them.
  • Always try to be aware of what and who is around you and avoid putting yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
  • And remember, it might not be you that is in danger - if you see anything you think is suspicious call the police - better safe than sorry!
