THREE people were shot, one fatally, on Amos Ferguson Street off Palmetto Avenue Tuesday.

This is the 55th murder for the year, according to this newspaper’s records.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Shanta Knowles said two people armed with firearms approached a group of men sitting in a yard and discharged their weapons in their direction.

She said two of the victims were transported to hospital where they were in stable condition.

ASP Knowles said one of the victims was known to police. “We are very early with this investigation,” she added. “We know that in the cool of the afternoon persons would have been outside and we’re asking anyone who has information that might assist us with this investigation to please give us a call. Use the Crime Stoppers line, 328-TIPS. We have a P3 system. Go to your (Google) Play Store, download the P3 application, click on country Bahamas and of course fill out the information. There is no need to put in an email address, your name, telephone, nothing, just give us the information.”
