ST. THOMAS — A shooting incident in the vicinity of Lindbergh Bay Beach on Thursday left two men injured with gunshot wounds, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte has announced.
The incident occurred at about 10:51 p.m, according to police. The 911 emergency call center dispatched V.I. Port Authority officers to the scene, as they were the closest to where the shooting occurred.
