According to the police report, at 1:56 a.m. police from the Major Crimes Unit were dispatched to the Bovoni housing Community Building B on a report of shots fired and a man down.

At the scene, police and EMTs found a black man lying on the ground by Building B with multiple gunshot wounds to the body and no vital signs.

Prince was transported to the morgue at the Schneider Regional Medical Center immediately afterwards.

Police did not issue an official report to the Virgin Islands Free Press as of today.
