Shots Fired In 2 Populated Locations On St. Thomas Miraculously Result In No One Being Injured: VIPD
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Shots fired in two separate incidents in downtown and Altona on St. Thomas miraculously resulted in no one being injured, authorities said.
The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to Veteran’s Drive near the pedestrian bridge in the vicinity of the Addelita Cancryn Junior High School in connection to a “reckless endangerment incident” at 6:16 p.m. Tuesday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“Officers traveled to the area and made contact with the complainant, who reported that someone in a black vehicle fired shots at his vehicle, causing damages, and fled the scene,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.
The Emergency Call Center subsequently received another call of a black vehicle with gunshot damage parked at Patriot Manor, and that several Black males exited the parked vehicle, according to Derima.
“The caller further stated that one of the males appeared injured,” he said. “Officers traveled to the scene and found the vehicle, but did not locate anyone.”
This case is currently under active investigation.
Anyone with any information regarding this crime is urged to contact police by calling 911, the Criminal Investigation Bureau at (340) 774-2211 extension 5579, or Crime Stoppers USVI at (800) 222-TIPS. Remember, if you see something, say something.
