CHRISTIANSTED – Police responded to reports of gunfire and fights at the Aqua Lounge Night Club in Estate Castle Coakley about 3 a.m. Sunday.

The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched police to the nightclub after receiving reports of fights inside and outside the Aqua Lounge and guns being fired.

When police arrived, they said they saw several people fleeing the area. The officers were unable to interview any witnesses and received no related reports of injuries or property damage.

But a search of the area by police yielded two live .40-caliber rounds and several spent shell casings.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
