There were patrons at the bar when the incident occurred.

– On Sept. 29, 2018, Ulcier Nehemiah Crump, 33, also known as Brandon Nesbett, was shot to death in El Rincon Bar, Queen Street, Frederiksted. According to the police report, at about 10:45 p.m. 911 received a report of a shooting at El Rincon Bar. Upon arrival, investigators determined that Crump had been in the bar when someone entered and fired multiple shots, striking Crump in the upper body. The shooter then fled the area on foot.
