Police in the Bahamas are investigating the execution-style shooting of a 55-year-old financial adviser who previously oversaw two banking institutions.

Assistant Superintendent Leon Bethel says he believes several people witnessed the shooting of Wales native Hywel Jones but are afraid to come forward.

He said yesterday that Jones was shot in the back of the head by someone apparently waiting outside the company's office.

Bethel said Jones is in critical condition and unable to talk to police. He was shot Wednesday around 9:30 a.m. Police do not have a motive but Bethel said Jones was not a random target.

He is the former director of The Bankers Association of The Bahamas and The Bahamas Institute of Bankers.
