‘Be On The Look Out’ Bulletin Issued For Suspect In Police Shooting Incident

Breaking News / News / Virgin Islands / March 27, 2015

The Virgin Islands Police Department issued a ‘Be On the Look Out’ (BOLO) bulletin Friday for Michael “Rambo” Lewis, 36, a person of interest in the recent shooting incident on St. Thomas where officers were targeted.

Police say Lewis is known to frequent the Smith Bay area, Coki Beach and Water Bay Condos. He has also been seen in the Contact Knolls area, near Building #1. Lewis is described as standing 6’1″, having a medium-brown complexion, hazel-colored eyes, and black, shoulder-length dread locks that he may have cut to disguise himself.

Lewis is considered to be armed and dangerous. Police is advising the public that if he is seen to call 911 immediately and do not approach him.

According to information received from VIPD Public Information Officer Kevin Jackson, at about 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, police officers on routine patrol observed a vehicle that had been reported stolen from the Cyril E. King Airport earlier in the day. As the officers attempted to stop the vehicle in the vicinity of Barbel Plaza, the vehicle’s occupant(s) opened fire, striking the police unit.

Other officers attempted to intercept the stolen vehicle as it traveled up Mafolie Road and again the occupant(s) fired after another police unit.

The suspect(s) eventually abandoned the vehicle in the area of Agnes Fancy and fled on foot. None of the officers were injured.

Anyone with information about Lewis’ whereabouts is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Bureau at (340) 715-5522, 911 or the anonymous tips service, Crime Stoppers USVI, at 1-800-222-8477.
