Oct. 21, 2003 Police in the British Virgin Islands said a 29-year-old man who was gunned down late Monday was from St. Thomas.
The identity of the man, who died on the scene after being shot multiple times, was not immediately released pending notification of his relatives, the B.V.I. Police press office said in a statement issued on Tuesday.
The statement said that police received a report of shots fired at 11:35 p.m. Monday. Witnesses told police that they heard a boat speeding away from the area toward St. Thomas immediately after the gunfire.
The killing took place at Frenchmans Cay, a community less than a mile from the West End ferry dock. Small boats have easy access to the area.
If ruled a homicide, the killing will be the seventh in the British territory over the last seven years.
