WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27: Police are preparing themselves for revenge attacks in the wake of the Joshua Robinson murder.

And they say they have already taken steps to reduce the chance of retaliatory action by rival gangs.

Earlier this week Detective Chief Inspector Nick Pedro said that Saturday’s brutal murder was gang related.

But no further information has been released about which gang police believe was responsible for the shooting at Jason’s Barbershop on North Shore Road.

Last night a police spokesman confirmed that no further arrests had been made by officers since they detained and then released one individual in the aftermath of the murder.

The spokesman said detectives were looking at ‘all lines of inquiry’.

He added: “At this time there is no credible information to indicate that the recent acquittal of Gariko Benjamin is related to the murder of Joshua Robinson.

“The Bermuda Police Service is focused on resolving this violent crime and apprehending those persons responsible for committing the murder of Joshua Robinson on Saturday evening.”

Mr Benjamin, 20, was cleared by  Supreme Court jury on Friday of firing a gun and leading police on a high-speed chase on a stolen bike. He had always denied the charges.

• Meanwhile, detectives investigating the murder of Mr Robinson are continuing to appeal to anyone with any information to come forward. The inquiry is being headed by Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro, and members of the Serious Crime Unit can be contacted directly on 247-1340 and 247-1739 or the main police number 295-0011. Alternatively, contact the independent Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477 (TIPS). Information will be treated in confidence.
