The Bermuda Police Service has confirmed the death of Jahni Terrence Kyle Outerbridge as the man who was shot Sunday night at the Mid-Atlantic Boat & Sports Club, North Shore Road, Devonshire.
As he extended his condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased, Acting Detective Inspector Kenton Trott said Mr. Outerbridge’s death is being treated as a murder investigation.
At approximately 11.20 p.m. on Sunday, January 29, police received several 911 calls reporting a man had been shot in the parking lot of the Mid-Atlantic Boat Club.
Police officers and EMTs arrived shortly thereafter and rendered first aid to Mr. Outerbridge. He was later transported to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Mr. Outerbridge is 31 years old and his death is the first murder of 2017 and the second shooting incident to have occurred within a week.
The investigation regarding the circumstances surrounding the murder of Jahni Outerbridge is being led by Mr. Trott and a team of detectives from the Serious Crimes Unit.
The Police are appealing for the public’s assistance in capturing Jahni’s murderer and bring to justice the person or persons responsible.
Mr. Trott said: “We are aware that there were approximately 50 persons at the Mid-Atlantic Sports Club on the night of this shooting and in particular we are interested in speaking with persons that would have been in the parking lot of the Mid-Atlantic Sports Club at the time of shooting.
"We are interested in speaking with persons that drove along North Shore Road from the western part of Spanish Point to Barkers Hill roundabout between 11:00pm and 11:30pm on Sunday 29th January, 2017.”
Mr. Trott continued: "Bermuda has lost another young man at the hands of senseless unscrupulous men. Another mother and father now have to bury their son and the extended family and friends of Jahni are grieving. Jahni truly has gone too soon and as a community we are calling on you to help ensure that justice is served and that Jahni’s family have closure."
