1Kyari Flood, 23, was found dead with a gunshot woundPolice said a 19-year-old was arrested at 11am on Wednesday after executing a firearms warrant.
A 20-year-old-man was also arrested and remains in police custody.
Police said Kyari’s death “may have a direct link” to reports of gunshots heard by residents on Sunday night.
He was found dead with a gunshot wound the next day in a derelict building in a “very isolated location”.
Kyari’s family described him as “happy-go-lucky”.
They said he was focused on getting his life back on track and moving back to England to be with his dad and sister after a stint in prison, Royal Gazette reports.
“He was excited about work and looking forward to being able to travel back and see his family again in England,” a relative said.
“I was told he was well mannered, very talented, he made time to work, and everyone at this particular establishment where he had been working was very proud of him.”
The relative said Kyari’s mum tragically died in a motorbike crash in 2021.
“Although he was going through his own pain and trauma, he took care of his sister,” she said.
“He would do whatever it took to make sure she was OK.
“They had a really, really tight relationship.”
Detective Inspector Jason Smith said: “The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank the public for their support with our investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of Kyari Flood.
“However, there remains a lot of work to be done and so we are once more appealing for anyone with any information, even if you don’t think it’s important, to please get in contact with us.
“That bit of information that you have may just be what we need to bring to justice whomever is responsible for Mr Flood’s death.”
