A 21-year-old man was stabbed and killed in the early hours of this morning.

We understand the young man was at a party at Bailey’s Bay Cricket Club when he was approached by another young man who stabbed him outside of the venue.

Police arrived on the scene at 1:30am and are still investigating the incident.

No more information will be released at this time.

 


Statement by Shadow Minister Derrick Burgess

I am deeply saddened and hurt by the news of the tragic death of this young man from Hamilton Parish.  Knowing the family, I hope that his parents, grandparents and those who knew and love him find comfort at this very sad time. I extend my personal condolences as well as those of my colleagues in the PLP to them at this time.

In a community as small as this one, the loss of any person in this horrific manner cannot be tolerated.  We encourage witnesses or anyone who can provide details leading to the capture and conviction of the person who committed this heinous act to speak out and assist the Bermuda Police Service in their investigation.
