Seven men have been shot and one killed during a community event to promote peace in the Bahamas.

Police Superintendent Stephen Dean said today that officers are still investigating and that no one has been arrested.

The shooting occurred late Monday local time in the capital of Nassau in a neighborhood known for its high crime rate.

Bahamian police also have been investigating an unrelated armed robbery that occurred at the home of the island's deputy prime minister.

Officers yesterday charged two men accused of holding up Philip Davis, his wife and their driver at gunpoint earlier this month before allegedly robbing his home.

The incident led the US Embassy in Nassau to issue an alert about an increase in criminal activity.
