School Security Officer Tied Up and Beaten

Nassau, Bahamas — Another school and government facility have been ransack by thieves.

BP is reporting the Doris Johnson High School is the latest government facility to experience such as four hooded men tied up the sole security officer on the compound and vandalized the facility.

A number of items were stolen and the police don’t have a clue who committed the crime. Police say the incident occurred around 4am and are asking the public for any assistance they may have. Where is the Damn Minister for Education? Out campaigning in Andros we could only guess.

Bahamas Press has an update on that police shoot today:

BP can confirm the incident occurred around 1:33pm today.

A police officer was shot on Sappodilla and Thatch Palm Blvd as he was at his brother’s residence. While at the residence a Silver Grayish Honda Accord pulled up with three male occupants inside.

The men masked themselves as the officer began to run away from them. One of the men opened fire; hitting the officer in the thigh. He is now in stable condition in hospital.
