CHARLOTTE AMALIE, ST. Croix, USVI — The [US] Virgin Islands Police Department on Monday afternoon released the mugshots of two men the force is classifying as persons of interest in the Watergut homicide that occurred on Sunday.

The men arrested in connection with the shooting were identified as Andre Auguste 27, from Frederiksted, and K’Shuan Hughes, 20, of Christiansted. Both men were charged with unauthorized possession of firearm, unauthorized possession of ammunition, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. They were jailed after failing to make bail of $25,000 each. Advise-of-rights hearing was set for today.

The incident occurred just before 3:00 p.m., according to Police Commissioner Delroy Richards, who told The Consortium that he received notification from 911 at about 3:11 p.m. on Sunday

Officers who responded to the scene after receiving notification, met the gunshot victim being attended to by paramedics. The victim was then transported to the hospital via ambulance, where he died.

Police later received an all points bulletin (A.P.B.) for a vehicle fitting the exact description that was said to be involved in the shooting. Mr. Richards said the vehicle was intercepted, with police observing items of evidentiary value in the car, including firearms. Officers took into custody the occupants of the vehicle, Mr. Auguste and Mr. Hughes, according to Mr. Richards.

“I know as of last night they were charged with firearms possession,” Mr. Richards said.

The deceased was identified as 23-year-old Dean Schneider. Mr. Richards said Sunday’s incident was the third time that Mr. Schneider was targeted. The prior occurrences, the commissioner revealed, took place in Barren Spot, when assailants opened fire on Mr. Schneider, who managed to escape both times.

Police are asking anyone with information about yesterday’s homicide incident to contact the force at 340-778-2211, or contact the anonymous tips line Crime Stoppers USVI here.

    Are rudders without anchors. All designed by the systems established by our oppressors. Educated from birth through books, tv, media, symbolisms, and images that teach our children self-hate, so they expressed this by horrible crimes against each other; and adults alike, hating on brothers and sisters who look like them.

    Critical understanding. Lord of the jungle. What image was Tarzan? Superheroes. Who are superman and wonder woman? Whose image was Jesus Christ? One can go on and on. This may go over some of our heads, but people who don't truly know who they are, act out their self-hate on themselves and everyone who looks like them. Study the programming ingested by our known 5 senses, 5 portals. Enough said.

    BVI- Who are our superheroes coming to save us today from those who seem to be selling us out for their pieces of eight? The patterns continue...

      And the worst thing is that it is virtually impossible to snatch them out of the spell. This young men are playing right into a system that was set to destroy them. One can argue that it is perhaps due to lack of education and knowledge of self but I'm starting to think that maybe this generation is too far gone.

    When heavily armed thugs decide to take over the streets, with no resistance from the security forces, you don't have to wonder who run things.

    Is there any mind control targeting going on in the USVI that is making these youths susceptible to daily violence? My suggestion sounds bizarre, but that technology was used in the Iraqi invasion in 2003 by the USA to subdue the Iraqi army and LHC machines in major cities to stir up violence in USA and elsewhere around the world. Do the research, one type of these mind and mood altering machines are close to colleges, for example, in the city of Chicago, the highest violence rate in the USA.

    The laws need to change to reflect the seriousness of the crime...for instance an attempt on a person life should be a no bail offense....having illegal guns should be a 75 years sentence...whether or not a crime was committed....rape a mandatory life sentence ...take the criminal car and the house where he or she lays their head...
