Man Succumbs to Gunshot Wounds on St. Croix

A man was found unresponsive on St. Croix Wednesday, the V.I. Police Department reported.

A concerned citizen reported that there was an unresponsive man in the Aureo Diaz Heights Community. VIPD responded to the scene and observed the man had sustained several gunshot wounds about his body, according to the police report.

The victim was identified by next of kin as 25-year-old Daniel Sanes, the police report stated.

This is an ongoing homicide investigation, police said.

Sanes’ death marks the second death of 2024 for St. Croix and the third for the territory, according to the Source Homicide List.

The Source Homicide List is a chronological log of the homicides recorded in 2024 in the U.S. Virgin Islands, as reported by the VIPD. Cases are broken down by island. While it is based on VIPD reports, the Source does not include suicides or vehicular homicides in its listing that the police and some other media do. This can lead to a discrepancy in the number of incidents reported.
