BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI – Investigators at the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) are probing a late-night shooting incident that occurred in the Baughers Bay, last evening Friday, July 24, 2020.

Sources told Virgin Islands News Online (VINO) that a man, who is a resident of the area, suspected some movement in his yard between 10:30 and 11:00 pm to which he investigated.

Upon investigation, he noticed an armed bandit dressed in black emerging from the bushes surrounding his home.

The bandit then immediately opened fire in the direction of the resident, firing a single gunshot before making good his escape from the property. 

No one was injured in the shooting, however, neighbours reported seeing the bandit fleeing the scene on foot following the incident.  

Police investigations continue.

    When you hear noise in the bushes late at night send a couple of those small kenips in that direction if there is no noise after that no need to investigate.

    I hope the young man change his ways. This was probably a warning.

    I was in the living room reading when the shot went off, I turn of the light and peep out the window just in time to see the back of a man in all black running past my house. I live four houses away from where the shot was fired.

      I was in the kitchen when I heard it and from living in NYC, you hear gun shots, you turn off the lights and hit the floor.I heard running but I was not trying to go anywhere near the kitchen window.

          You can’t call the person a fool. Four houses away can mean in any direction.

    As people stay longer out of work, their money is depleting. So when people are hungry or cannot feed their families, desperation sets in. Look out for more of this. It would survival of the fittest

    “The bandit then immediately opened fire in the direction of the resident...before MAKING GOOD HIS ESCAPE from the property”?
    Please stop glorifying these guys with this kind of language.
    The coward shot at his potential victim and then ran away. Period. End of sentence.
