The country’s murder count has reached six for the year as police are now investigating two recent homicides.
The most recent incident occurred early Tuesday morning at a residence in Churchill Subdivision off Soldier Road.
According to preliminary reports this incident appears to be the result of a home invasion and robbery.
Chief Superintendent of Police Paul Rolle, officer-in-charge of the Central Detective Unit (DEU), said police received reports of the incident shortly after 5:00a.m., Tuesday.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the man’s body submerged in water in his bathtub.
He appeared to have injuries to the upper body, Chief Superintendent Rolle said.
While police did not release the man’s identity, the Bahama Journal understands that he is a recent retiree from the Ministry of Works.
Police have since taken a man into custody in connection with this incident and two other suspects are being sought, police said late Tuesday afternoon.
Police are also investigating a shooting which occurred in Grand Bahama in the Murchinson and Bass Lane area Monday evening.
Police reportedly learned of the incident shortly after 6:00 pm Monday.
They met the lifeless body of a male in the street with multiple gunshot wounds.
At last report, a 20-year-old man from Freeport was assisting police with the investigations.
