HUNTUMS GHUT, Tortola, VI - After checking with multiple sources, our news centre can now confirm that a Dominican native—between 30 and 40 years of age—Erran Charles of Horse Path is the man who was shot and died this evening Sunday, February 3, 2019, in Huntums Ghut on Tortola.

In addition, we can confirm that a 17-year-old boy is at Peebles Hospital, after also being shot at the same time.

            Exactly! These are some serious threats being made on here. I hope that the Crime Prevention Team or any other Officers are doing to do a through investigation .
            From the language and talk being said, these appear to be young people who don't have any regards for human life! They playing bad men, bad men don't kill and run and hide. They need to face the reprecussions of their wayward actions.
