TRELLIS BAY, Beef Island, VI- Several persons were made to run for cover as shots were fired in the air outside a popular bar at Trellis Bay, Beef Island in the early morning hours of March 26, 2016.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, it was shortly after 3AM during a heated argument between “a couple” when the man threatened to shoot the female he was with.

The woman reportedly told him “you can’t shoot me, you don’t have any gun,” at which stage the man allegedly whipped out a gun and fired off two shots in the air.

No one was reportedly hurt but it sent persons running for cover and the incident also brought the activity at the bar to an abrupt end.

There were reportedly several plain clothes police officers at the event but it is not clear if anyone was arrested.

Police Information Officer Diane Drayton had not responded to our queries on the matter up to post time.

        If I had any type of night club or business, it would be geared toward a mature crowd only. I will not allow you to come in my club unless you were a certain age, no jeans, no sneakers etc. People should be able to go out and enjoy themselves.

    Police need to stop wear plain clothes and wear UNIFORM ... so that criminals will know armed forces are out and about and choose not to pull off their intended crime

      so the police don't have down time, if the police are liming they must go wear a uniform to do what. you must ask questions before you just speak out of context

      Ignorant! Are the police psychics? They will still need to puece together a whole story asbto why the couple got into an argumentBobbin the first place. They still will need to ask questions to people who know them best. Just being there is not enough.

    Try having a Jam for 30yrs old and over and see how much big people would show up? Less than 15. There are lots of good party loving, party behaving young people... Just a few bad ones. We have to weed out.

      that is foolishness... the reason grown people don't go out here is because they don't want to rub shoulders with the little gangsters and hoodrats. They prefer to stay home or have private functions. We need a place on Tortola where grown people can hang out, with a strict dress code, age limit and behavior code. Many would happily pay more to not have these social troublemakers around, i don't care who you are 'for'. A place that plays real music of varied genres and not the drivel being played at most events. And enough with the low strip club vibe that seems so popular ghetto and disrespectful to women. There are good mature liming places in the other islands and they make money and function well.

    The cops don't need to ask any questions. She; the intended victim should be leading police to his house, boat and everything else - where all the guns are hidden.

    Deport these spawns from another realm.Shucks!
    Better yet,import those whose spawns are proven to be law abiding.
    The choice of a country worthy of inhabitants is up to the VI.

      And what SPAWN do you think should be here? There are NO PROVEN law abiding SPAWNS from any one particular place. The entire world has good and bad people, so get off of that SHIT about importing law abiding people. We have law abiding people right here and from other countries, so who do you speak of?

        Well you must be living in a different BVI or a different Caribbean World or the cap must fit...too. Bad..Read the second sentence of " parish post" and read the last sentence of your post. Try to connect your grey matter with logic. Theire is a disconnect with logic for some,more than others,as you are now demonstrating.

      Some people will get mad but you are correct, black people is always causing drama when they go somewhere. It is either out of ignorance or just plain damn stupidity. You bump them accidentally, it's a problem, you step on their foot accidentally, it's a problem, you look at them, it's a problem. Even if you say you are sorry, they want to jump on you. Just plain ghetto mentality or stupidity.
