Crime Stoppers Offers Reward on United Shopping Plaza Shooting

The anonymous tip service, Crimes Stoppers USVI, is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator of a June 19 shooting that injured one man.

According to the V.I. Police Department’s report, at around 11:10 p.m. June 19, the 911 emergency call center received a report of shots fired in the parking lot of the United Shopping Plaza, St. Croix. At the scene, officers learned that a male victim, who was not identified, had been transported to the Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital via private vehicle.

Witnesses told police that a silver Ford Escape with no license plate came into the shopping center and traveled around the parking lot in the opposite direction of the flow of traffic. The passengers inside the Ford Escape opened fire on a group of individuals.

The victim received multiple gunshot injuries that were not considered life-threatening and was listed in stable condition.

Anyone with information on the Crime of the Week case or any other crime can call Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-8477 (1-800-222-TIPS) or submit a tip online at www.P3tips.com or www.crimestoppersvi.org.

Callers will be issued a confidential PIN and are encouraged to check back frequently for reward eligibility. Information that leads to the resolution of a crime can qualify the caller for an anonymous cash reward.
