Man Shot Multiple Times In St. John

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / August 7, 2019

ST. JOHN — A man was shot multiple times Tuesday night in St. John, but police say the victim has refused to divulge details of the incident, only stating that he doesn’t know what happened, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Karl Caesar said Wednesday.

According to the release, at about 8:58 p.m. Tuesday, V.I.P.D. officers from the St. John Jurgen Command responded to a 911 call of shots fired in the Bayside area near Caps Place in Cruz Bay.

Upon arrival, officers found an alert and responsive black male in his early to mid-30s, who was shot multiple times in his lower extremity.

Additional detectives and crime scene technicians processed the scene and discovered that at least seven shots were discharged. Officers then accompanied the alert victim to the Myrah Keating Smith Clinic for treatment. At that point, the victim refused to give any information to the officers about the incident, according to Mr. Caesar.

The victim was later accompanied by detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau to be transported to the Schneider Regional Medical Center for further treatment.

This case is currently under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau. The V.I.P.D. is asking anyone with information about the incident to call 340-774-2211. You may also contact the Major Crimes Unit at (340)714-9830 or the Criminal Investigation Bureau (340)714-9807. Additionally, you can contact Crime Stoppers USVI with an anonymous tip here.
