CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St Thomas, USVI— The body of a man was discovered in Coki Point, St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (USVI) Thursday night, June 6, 2019 after concerned residents reported the firing of gunshots in the area, [US] Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) Public Information Officer Glen Dratte has confirmed to The Consortium.

The 911 emergency call center dispatched officers from the Mariel C. Newton Command along with investigators from the VIPD’s Criminal Investigation Bureau to the scene in Coki Point.

Upon arrival, officers and investigators discovered the body of a Black male in the roadway near an outlet called the Feed Shop. The victim, whose body showed no vital signs, was shot multiple times and appeared to have died on the scene, Mr Dratte said.

The victim was identified by next of kin as 27-year-old Clement Alturo King III.

The VIPD is asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of suspects to contact the Criminal Investigation Bureau at 340-774-2211, ext. 5569, or 340-714-9830. You may also contact Crime Stoppers USVI with an anonymous tip here.

    It is so sad that it has become a weekly event where young black males in the USVI are becoming statistics to gun and drug violence. This is the result of the welfare system that prevents the development of families with women being the head of the household instead of men. We have failed our territory. It is also the result of the USVIslander falling for the lure of accepting too many federal programs instead of roughing it on its own and so the psyche of the USVIslander has been changed forever to dependence instead of independence.

      I need to make a correction to the statement above.

      The globalist agenda has been accomplished in the USVI. There has been an exodus of the USVIslander to the mainland USVI leaving those behind to contend with the problems.

      Is BVI next ?

      Yes we are!

      What is the solution?

      Recognize that there is an agenda to destroy humanity. Genesis 6. Book of Enoch. UN 2030 population agenda, 5G roll out by 2020 in the USA, the REAL ID in all USA drivers licences by 2020 and all credit and debit caeds, Climate change due to Nibiru approaching not human mis-use of the planet's resources, frequent GOVERNMENT drills throughout USA for an EMP ATTACK, etc

      Pray always and believe and follow the Book not from a religious point of view only but it is the greatest science book which the Vatican has been deliberately mis-interpreting to us and failed at it.

      Wake up!

    @Hit....quite an opinion there. Have you got any basis for them? I'd argue that this type of anti social behavior is the result of underinvestment in education rather than welfare, not to mention a woefully low minimum wage (still better than BVI's $ 6/hour but not by much), as well as too much time spent in fantasy shoot-'em up video games and watching gangsta drug dealer easy riches videos and movies. Plus the relatively easy availability of guns. It's also a failure on the part of the leadership to consistently create more opportunities for youth. Make no mistake, these issues also affect the BVIs. Reported murder rate in USVIs (FBI data) in 2017 was something like 52/100,000. BVIs works out to be about 40/100,000 (10 murders in 2017). Jamaica and St. Kitts come in around 33/100,000.
    . As far as federal programs, presumably USVIslanders should have turned away FEMA aid(after before turning away other aid)
