Gunmen entered home, murdered Ettienne while children present

October 22 murder victim, Kareem Ettienne.

Gunmen entered 24-year-old Kareem Ettiene’s Fahie Hill residence and killed him while women and children, including his own, were present.

The incident unfolded between 9 and 10 o’clock Monday night, October 22.

Highly-placed sources said that Ettiene received at least two gunshots to the chest after the shooter/s inconspicuously gained access and discharged multiple shots.

It is not clear how many assailants were involved in the shooting but, based on information to our news centre, the murder was a targeted attack.

At least seven persons including the now-deceased man were in the house at the time of the shooting.

Ettiene, who is the son of a police officer, was murdered less than 24 hours after 30-year-old Tyrone Thomas shot dead in the East End area of Tortola.

It is not clear whether the two shootings are connected.

Investigations are ongoing.

      Please stop using the long gone hurricane as an excuse for the behavior of these jungle savages. When you enter someone’s home and kill someone you are a jungle savage.

      Look where you gone with your divisive language. Besides when you talk about locals these days, you talking about us as Belongers because this is what the BVI consists of to a LARGE degree. WE make up the new BVI…like it or not. So stop talking like that about your own people. From your comments, it is evident that you are not Jesus-spirit-filled, but full of the DEVIL yourself.

        Since Belongers are the new locals,and in fact the majority unfortunately,then the comments rightfully is meant for Belongers who ,as you stated, makes up the New BVI. The New BVI is definitely not Jesus filled. It is Devil filled,evidenced by the ongoinh deliberate murders committed by your group,of so called Belongers. Chill and try to get some Peace for the destruction you and your group has visited on a once blessed place. Personally I loathe this group comprising your “New BVI”.

      Pay your bills? stop repeating nonsense about owed money and drugs.

      I do not know anything and I am sure you dont either.

      except you are repeating the same nonsense you hear people without a common sense talking.

      For one thing to kill a person who owes money is to encourage others to pay up. That happens in places with strong criminal organizations where the criminals run the place, and instead of hiding they proudly wear tattoos and throw signs. Places where show of power is key.

      Considering this is one day after a murder…This here what happened looks to me to be a crime of passion/vengeance.

      looks to me they had no patience for elaborate plans.

      AND IS ONLY COMMON SENSE needed to think this way(…..) I may be wrong but it makes more sense than what people assume about owed monies.

      IF people are so sure the victim owed money… then who did he owe money to, and how do yall know???

      or is it people repeating nonsense because everyone wants to blame “drugs” for problems. no one in their right mind sells substances on credit.

      The first place Police need to start looking for those responsible for crimes is in the blogs. I am sure they will find leads to many heartless criminals, beginning with Kap Kap. It cannot be that difficult, These are the days when EVERY SINGLE electronic record is maintained. People should be held accountable for what they say, whether it be verbally or electronically.

    “Ms. Curious”, you have raised an important observation

    More salient, what could that young man have done that could have warranted such a brutal and violent end to his life in his own home with other’s at home?

    I’m clueless!

  15. Zabat says:

    Where are the raster men that used to teach the children right? We need to encourage more respect and honesty among the people if we want to see less crimes. Let’s form a club where we go to learn from each other the rules of life, how to respect each other and live in peace. No, we want the strip clubs instead.
