Bahamas: Two men killed in double homicide on Pitt Road

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Two men were found dead on Pitt Road shortly after 7.30am today, according to police.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Solomon Cash said officers were responding to shots fired in the area when they found the bodies — one of the men believed to be in his early 30s and the other in his late 20s.

One of the bodies was found on the road and the other found in a yard.

Police did not confirm the identity of the victims; however, relatives identified the two men as Calvin Archer and Amal Hunter.

Cash told reporters at the scene there were few details concerning the incident at this time; however, one of the victims was known to police.

“We are looking at his victimology and hopefully by us examining his victimology we could be able to share a little more,” he said.

“It’s a bit early in the investigation, so we don’t have all the circumstances surrounding these shootings.

“We can appeal to members of the public who live in this area or who may have been in the area at the time of the incident to contact police.”
