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.
