Police Issue Witness Appeal In Fox Murder Investigation

 Police Issue Witness Appeal In Fox Murder Investigation

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) is renewing our appeal for information in connection with the murder of Clarke Fox and the attempted murder of Kyari Flood.

Mr. Fox was fatally shot and Mr. Flood wounded, two years ago, on Tuesday the 17th of March 2020, in broad daylight on Court Street in Pembroke. The two suspects were on a dark coloured motorcycle; the rider was wearing a light coloured sweat top, blue jeans, multi-coloured sneakers, gloves and a dark coloured full faced helmet – while the passenger was wearing a dark coloured jacket, dark coloured pants, dark sneakers, a white helmet with tinted full faced visor and was in possession of a firearm.

The suspect motorcycle travelled south on Court Street and the pillion passenger discharged multiple shots towards Mr. Fox and Mr. Flood (the two victims) who were standing near the junction of Court Street and Elliot Street, Pembroke. The two victims ran south on Court Street towards Dundonald Street, as the suspect vehicle pursued them and the passenger continued to discharge the weapon in their direction. In an attempt to flee the shooter, Mr. Fox and Mr. Flood turned around and ran north on Court Street, heading back towards Elliot Street. The suspect motorcycle turned around and continued to pursue Mr. Fox and Mr. Flood, with the pillion passenger continuing to discharge the firearm in the direction of the two victims. The suspects then made good their escape on the dark coloured motorcycle, traveling west on Elliot Street, leaving the area.

Mr. Fox was transported to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital where he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries. Mr. Flood was also transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Jason Smith emphasized: “This brazen act of violence was committed not under the cover of darkness, but rather at 2:45 in the afternoon, on a busy street where people were moving about or entering or leaving any of the several businesses in that area. Many of these people forced to take evasive action to avoid being injured by indiscriminate actions of the gunman or, worse. Sadly, Mr. Fox was not able to do so.”

We are once again appealing anyone who may have witnessed this cruel act or have any information no matter how insignificant you may think it to be, to please contact Detective Sergeant Jason Smith on 717-0864 or via email, jsmith2@bps.bm. You may also call 295-0011 or Crime Stoppers anonymously, on 800-8477. The information you provide the BPS can assist with enquires and help to solve this murder.”
