The V.I. Police Department on Tuesday identified the man who was killed by gunfire Saturday as Ohio resident Randy Stickle.
Stickle was shot multiple times about his body in the Golden Rock area, just outside Christiansted, police said. His name was not released earlier while police notified next of kin.
The department’s news release did not specify where in Ohio Stickle’s family resides, nor did it say whether Stickle was visiting as a tourist, or working as a recovery worker or for some other reason.
The incident remains under investigation.
