Officers of the Selective Enforcement Team (SET) – a new division of the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) –arrested a 28-year-old Key West Street man at his home shortly after 1:30 a.m.

Dupree, 29, was gunned down on East Street and Coconut Grove Avenue a week ago.

Police said Dupree was riding a motorcycle in the Sunlight Cottage area last week Wednesday when he was shot multiple times.

Dupree died on the scene.

He was the country’s 79th homicide for the year.

Officers also just reported on Wednesday that another suspect has already been charged by police in connection with this latest murder.

Police released no information on that arraignment or when the first suspect will return to court.

Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested

A 24-year-old Life Buoy Street man was arrested by police minutes after he and another man attempted to rob a local businessman yesterday morning.

Initial police reports say the incident happened shortly after 4:00 a.m. when the victim was closing up shop at his bar on Deveaux Street.

Two men approached the proprietor and demanded cash, police said.

Police say the two men then assaulted the victim with a firearm and fled on foot after the victim pleaded he had no cash.

Minutes after, police on mobile patrol arrived on the scene where they found an individual nearby matching the description of one of the suspects.

Officers stopped the man, determined that he was one of the suspects in the attempted robbery and arrested him.

Police are still searching for the other suspect.
