One Man Dies In Shooting Of Two People At Estate Nadir On Saturday Morning: VIPD

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Two people were shot in St. Thomas late Saturday morning — a man died at the scene and a woman was being treated in the hospital after the shooting, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

The shooting took place in Estate Nadir before 11:58 a.m. on Saturday. Neither the man nor the woman was identified by the VIPD.

“A male and a female were shot in this incident,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “The male victim was pronounced dead at the scene.”

There was no immediate information available about the health condition of the female victim, Derima said.

This case is currently under active investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).

“More information will be forthcoming as details become available,” he said.

There have been 36 homicides in the territory in 2019. Some 22 murders took place in St. Croix and 14 happened in St. Thomas.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
