VIPD: Clement King III Shot To Death On Roadway In Estate Bovoni Last Night
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A 27-year-old St. Thomas man was found shot to death on a Bovoni roadway last night, authorities said.
Clement Alturo King III was found some time after a concerned citizen called 911 and reported shots fired about 8:57 p.m. Thursday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“Units from the Mariel C. Newton Command, along with units from the Criminal Investigation Bureau traveled to Coki Point where the body of an unresponsive black male was discovered in the roadway, near the ‘Feed Shop,'” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said. “The male appeared to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds about his body.”
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) were on scene and concluded that the male did not show any vital signs, according to Dratte.
Next of kin identified the dead man as King, the VIPD said. Dratte said in an official VIPD press release that King was found in the “Coki Point area.”
Dratte told the Virgin Islands Free Press today that King was found shot to death near Good Life Feed & Pet Store in Estate Bovoni.
