MID-ISLAND, St. Croix – A 32-year-old man was found by police laying in the street with gunshot wounds after crawling out of his vehicle near Kingshill Lutheran Church after his vehicle had been struck by multiple rounds of gunfire about an hour before noon on Saturday, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.

The 911 Emergency Call Center notified police at 11:10 a.m. Saturday that a shooting had taken place on the Queen Mary Highway (Centerline Road) at the intersection of Clifton Hill and Kingshill adjacent near the Kingshill Lutheran Church, according to eyewitness and police  reports.

The man was discovered by officers laying in the street with what appeared to have been multiple gunshot wounds to his body, according to police. The officers observed that the man’s vehicle had also been struck by numerous projectiles and spent shell-casings were seen throughout the intersection.

Traffic through the crossroad was stopped and detoured, as an ambulance transported the injured man to the Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center’s Emergency Room, where he was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and legs.

There are no known suspects involved with the shooting and the condition of the individual is unknown at this time, according to police.
