Four Shot at Robin Hood Pub & Restaurant: Investigation Underway [Updated]

Tue, 2021-10-26

Around 6:00 p.m. today, Tuesday 26th October, 2021, Police and EMS staff responded to reports of a firearms incident at the Robin Hood Pub and Restaurant on Richmond Road, Pembroke.

Reports are that unknown individuals entered the premises and discharged several shots in the direction of a group of men who were in the establishment.

Four persons sustained gunshot wounds.

Three of the injured parties were transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, while the fourth victim was taken to hospital in a private vehicle.

This matter is being treated as a critical incident with Assistant Commissioner Daniels as the Gold Commander and a team of detectives is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Peter Stableford of the Serious Crime Division.

There were several individuals inside the pub and restaurant at the time of the incident and the investigators are interested in speaking with anyone with information no matter how insignificant they may think it to be.

Acting Commissioner of Police Darrin Simons condemned this senseless act of violence, “This heinous act carried out by individuals who it would seem have no regard for life or even the safety and wellbeing of others for that matter, has left our community shaken. This is not who we are as Bermudians. The public can expect to see increased policing around reassurance patrols in direct response to this incident. This is being addressed at the highest level in terms of our response and commitment of resources around that. There were rumours circulating that a police officer was killed in this attack. I can categorically state, there is no truth to these claims.”

Meantime, we are again appealing for anyone with any information at all on this incident, to please call 211, the main police number, 295-0011 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
