Shots Fired at Man While Driving on Midland Road, Police Say

Shots were allegedly fired at a man while he was driving on St. Croix Sunday, the V.I. Police Department reported.

Around 4:48 p.m., the 911 Emergency Call Center reported the discharging of shots on Midland Road in the vicinity of Marvelous Auto Repair, according to the police report.

When officers arrived on scene, they spoke with a man who stated that while driving in
the vicinity of Bliss Night Club, he began hearing gunshots. The victim stated he did not
realize that he was being shot at until he saw a black, heavily tinted Acura TSX beside him
on the passenger side with a person firing shots at him, the police report stated.

He described the shooter as a Black male with his body sticking out the sunroof of the car and firing a handgun with a clip. The victim stated that he stopped, and the perpetrator continued towards Mon Bijou light while still firing shots, the report stated.

The Criminal Investigation Bureau continues to investigate this matter. Anyone with
information can call 911, the CIB Tipline at (340) 778-4950 or Crime Stopper V.I. at
