Nassau, Bahamas - Police is requesting the public's help in solving an overnight shooting incident that occurred at Marigold Farm Road off Joe Farrington Road, that has left one man dead and a man and woman in hospital.
The murder count reached triple digits over the weekend, as five violent deaths recorded in the space of 48 hours pushed the count to a staggering 100 for the year so far.
This is the highest number of murders ever recorded in a single year since records have been kept in The Bahamas.
Four murders took place between Friday night and Saturday afternoon in separate incidents.
Another man who was shot Thursday died in hospital on Saturday night, police confirmed yesterday.
The first murder of the weekend occurred on Friday around 9 p.m. at West Bay Street, west of Nirvana Beach. When investigators arrived on the scene they discovered the body of a man with several gunshot injuries, according to Superintendent Stephen Dean.
Up to yesterday, police were still uncertain about the circumstances surrounding the man's death, and appealed to members of the public for their assistance in solving the crime.
Police believe the victim was a Haitian. Dean said the man was reportedly riding a bicycle when he was shot. Police said the second incident took place around 3:43 a.m. on Saturday in the area of the Corner Pocket Bar, Kemp Road.
According to police, the victim got into an altercation with another man which resulted in both men receiving gun shot injuries. Police said they were taken to hospital. One died and the other was hospitalized in serious condition.
The dead man was identified as Damian Bowe, 29.
The third incident reportedly occurred shortly before 4 a.m. on Saturday on Cordeaux Avenue. Initial police reports indicate that a man got into an altercation with another man and was stabbed to the abdomen.
The victim was taken to hospital by emergency medical services personnel where he died.
Dean said police believe the Kemp Road and Cordeaux Avenue murders stem from a shooting that happened in Kemp Road earlier last week. Dean added that police are following significant leads in both matters. However, police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
"We want to bring these persons into custody, particularly those who continue to wreak havoc on our streets," he told The Nassau Guardian on Saturday. "We say to the criminal element, the police will be aggressively pursuing you. We will find you. We will seek you out and we will not stop until we bring you to justice."
Police are also investigating the death of a handicapped man, who was found at the Centre Burial Ground, north of Eastern Cemetery on Shirley Street. The unidentified man was found around 2:55 p.m. on Saturday lying on his back with a stab wound to the abdomen, police said.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Hulan Hanna, who was on the scene, said a wheelchair and several used alcoholic bottles were found near the body.
The victim was last seen alive around noon that day. He reportedly frequented the area. Hanna said the man appeared to be in his early 40s. Police are unsure of the circumstances surrounding his death.
Police are investigating all matters and are appealing to members of the public who may have any information regarding any of these incidents to contact police at 911, 919, 322-3333, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991, 502-9910 or Crime Stoppers at 328-TIPS.
Meantime, police reported yesterday that the man who was injured on Thursday during a double shooting in Ridgeland Park died in hospital around 9 p.m. on Saturday.
Police said they met a white Maxima parked in the middle of the road with two men inside early Thursday. They said one man, who has been identified as Clayton Smith, was shot in the back of the head and died on the scene.
The second victim who died in hospital on Saturday was also shot in the head, according to police.
A third man was killed in a separate incident on Thursday at about 5 a.m. on Palmetto Avenue.
Police said the man, who has not yet been officially identified, was shot and killed moments after he walked out of his girlfriend's home. He was shot multiple times to the upper body.
This same time last year the murder count stood at 68, according to The Nassau Guardian's records. This means that the murder count has increased by 47 percent over this time last year.
Since earlier this year, some analysts predicted that there would be more than 100 murders in 2011. And with just over three months remaining in the year, that prediction will likely be realized.
"The work never seems to end," Hanna said.
"It is  and it is foreboding for the country that here just passed the middle of September this is the stark reality today. But when we put it in perspective we can determine -- now I don't speak with particular reference to [the recent murders] -- but in a lot of instances we are satisfied that it appeared to be people of certain categories [who were killed].
"Now a life is a life and a murder is a murder, but if there is a perspective to all of this, it seems to be a constituency of people who are falling victim to these heinous offenses."
They came, they listened, they applauded, and applauded again and again, so loudly you couldn’t hear past the thunder of 200 hands. The clapping exploded from an audience of accomplished women, members of the Corona Society, who had gathered for their annual meeting October 20 in a decorated banquet hall of the British Colonial Hilton, expecting light lunch and hearty camaraderie. What they got was a whole lot more. They got a powerful woman delivering a powerful message, telling them to ignore the negative noise around them that could take them down with it, decide who they wanted to be, what they wanted to stand for and begin to shape the future that was in their hands. What was past was past, said Suzanne Black. “The best is yet to come.”

What they got was a whole lot more. They got a powerful woman delivering a powerful message, telling them to ignore the negative noise around them that could take them down with it, decide who they wanted to be, what they wanted to stand for and begin to shape the future that was in their hands. What was past was past, said Suzanne Black. "The best is yet to come."
"In these challenging times, we need to reflect on who we say we are, what we say we want and why we do what we do," said Black, who has held executive and leadership positions in banking, management, insurance and real estate and earned accolades, admiration, official and private sector recognition, including an honorary doctorate in letters and a medal during the country's Silver Jubilee. How, she asked the audience, "can I say the best is yet to come" when challenges seem greater than ever before?
"Because so much of what we see, hear and read tends to reflect what is negative that we often tend to overlook what is positive... Getting to the better begins within each of us... The challenge is to choose what you wish to think about and what you say. In other words, do you think with words that will build and effect positive change or do you think with words that portray no light at the end of the tunnel? Our choices are demonstrated through the words we say that reflect the thoughts in our minds."
Choosing, she said, is not a one-shot deal. "It's a Monday to Sunday every day deal and it requires that we act with the courage of our words."
Paraphrasing and crediting Dr. Joseph Murphy's famous line, "to change our mind is to change our world", she encouraged the women, from bank executives to supermoms, to think of change as a ride on a seesaw, fear pulling you down, faith helping you to rise up. Fear of change stops change in its tracks, dooms it, faith in the positive leads to positive words, thoughts, encourages positive thinking people to gather round you. She might have added that if the path to doom is paved with gloom, the path to change is an open field planted with positive seeds.
"No one can make us feel inferior without our permission. No one can make us feel that we cannot achieve desired objectives without our permission," said the sought-after speaker, a frequent panelist.
"Earlier this year I was interviewed by Dr. Keith Wisdom for his television show "Portraits". When asked by Dr. Wisdom about the future of The Bahamas, I said that I believed that The Bahamas could become not only a better country, but one of the best countries in the world."
Though Black has a record of about as many firsts as any living Bahamian - first Bahamian to head an offshore bank, first (and only) woman president of the Lyford Cay Club, founder of the Bahamas Women's Forum, among other achievements, she challenged the audience to action, because if the best is yet to come, it has to start with a belief in change. It begins with one person who believes, but grows with conviction and courage and teamwork.
"You are fund-raisers, organizers, professionals, you manage relationships, homes and your own lives. I believe there is enough skills power in this room to not only change The Bahamas, but to help change the world, to grow towards the best that is yet to come."
During the thunderous applause, a clinical psychologist to the writer's left leaned over and mouthed the words, "Wow, I've never seen this room so quiet. These women took in every word. Maybe the best IS yet to come."
They came, they listened, they applauded, and applauded again and again, so loudly you couldn't hear past the thunder of 200 hands.

An 11-year-old boy was shot and killed in Andros on Saturday morning as he and his nine-year-old cousin reportedly played with a licensed firearm, police said.
Police could not confirm if it was the nine-year-old who pulled the trigger.
Chief Superintendent Clayton Fernander, who heads the Central Detective Unit (CDU), said a team of CDU officers traveled to Andros to assist with the investigation.
He said details surrounding the shooting were sketchy.
"Right now we are still trying to tie up the loose ends, so that's all the information that I can give," he said.
Fernander said it was still unclear how the children gained access to the weapon.
He said it is incumbent on those who carry firearms to ensure that their weapons are kept in a secure safe, especially if children are involved.
"We know that any time the approvals for a licensed shotgun are given, the licensee must have a safe," said Fernander when asked how gun holders should secure their weapons.
"License holders should not leave their guns lying around. It is irresponsible, especially when there are kids or anyone for that matter because a burglar can come into your house and get your gun. I'm not saying that is the case in this instance, but license holders ought to be responsible.
"People should leave their weapons in safes and keys should be properly secured."
He warned that there are consequences for those who do not protect their guns.
"If we find that people are doing that they are going to get their license revoked," Fernander warned.
The boy's identity was withheld yesterday.
Anyone who has started a business has his or her own rules and guidelines, so I thought I would add to the memo with my own. My "rules" below aren't just for those founding the companies, but for those who are considering going to work for them, as well.
1. Don't start a company unless it's an obsession and something you love.
