Dominican Pleads Guilty to Firearm Charge in December Fatal Shooting

Charlie Manuel Castillo Borg, 26, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, pled guilty Thursday on U.S. District Court to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.

According to Shappert, Borg faces up to 10 years in prison.

According to court documents, a shooting occurred Dec. 22 at the establishment called the Executive Night Club, Bar and Restaurant at Contant No. 38, St. Thomas.

Surveillance video from the incident collected at the scene shows a male subject, later identified with the initials I.D.A., open the door of the Executive Night Club, Bar and Restaurant and discharge a firearm into the establishment. Immediately thereafter, the surveillance video shows the defendant, Charlie Manuel Castillo Borg, shooting a firearm at I.D.A., striking him several times. Medical personnel later pronounced I.D.A. dead at the scene.

A query conducted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services found that Borg is illegally in the United States.
