BVI News understands that following an investigation, the police officer who was shot in Virgin Gorda on April 17, 2020, has been discharged from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force.
It is understood that the policeman, Officer Shawn Williams, initially told investigators that he was shot by an unknown assailant while in the Spring Bay area of the sister island.
However, investigators later found that the cop accidentally shot himself and lied about the incident. Although the exact date isn’t known, BVI News understands that he was discharged during the latter part of 2020.
It’s also understood that the shooting incident isn’t the only reason he was discharged from Force. Among other things, it’s understood that drugs were found in the clothes he was wearing when the shooting incident took place.
He was then ordered to undergo drug tests which returned positive results. BVI News hasn’t been able to ascertain the quantity of drugs discovered or the exact substance for which the cop tested positive.
