Accused VG shooter charged with attempted murder


Police have named 28-year-old Dillion Thomas as the assailant behind the July 10 shooting from which a male victim sustained non-fatal injuries on Virgin Gorda.

Thomas – a resident of Petty Pasture, North Valley – has been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The accused man is expected to appear in the Magistrate’s Court this week.

Meanwhile, the reported victim of the incident continues to receive treatment at Peebles Hospital for the gunshot wounds, police have said.

Police have not released the victim’s name but highly-placed sources have identified the victim as Rudy Vanterpool.

Investigations are ongoing.

    —– had it coming long time ….. they walk around playing as tho they are untouchable and that they are the baddest thing out ….. they have bin tormenting this guy for some time now …. he has had enough obviously

  12. Truth! says:

    We are very sorry on how things turned out for both parties, both young men are loved in the community. But the truth must be told.T—did the wrong thing by using a gun, on the other hand provocation is against the law, every body have a breaking point,but this is where anger management comes in.All will try to play this “T guy as the worst, but no saints in this picture.My boy you done in it, tell all, the truth.Remind the public in case they forget that the place ofthe incident was not only indangered by you, but is a place of danger on a daily basis for all because drugs as well as guns is reckless. TALK THAT. “WHERE THERE IS DRUGS in a community and people pretend for who they wa,that this block dont exist, things like this will continue.We were just wondering,what was the reason for both parties meeting up at this special place?.

    It’s unfortunate what happened to Vanterpool but we got to give Jack he jacket and —‘s been a problem. And on the other hand Thomas has been dealing with this young man for some time now. But, he’s wrong too because now he’s facung serious jail time. Both young men are gonna drop down their parents, but truth be told- this has been brewing for some time. Im sad that law enforcement didn’t intervene before it came to this. BVI Young Men- yall aint gonna be around to reproduce or even raise your children. What are yall existing for? The path a lot of you guys is on is short lived… and it’s not called living. Sad
