A male gunshot victim is receiving treatment at Peebles Hospital following a shooting on Tortola minutes after midnight on Thursday, July 19.
The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force said the shooting happened in the Baughers Bay area of the island.
Police said no further details are available at this time.
This latest shooting comes days after a previous shooting on the sister island of Virgin Gorda.
In that July 10 incident, 28-year-old Dillion Thomas is accused of shooting Virgin Gorda resident Rudy Vanterpool five times.
Thomas has since been charged with attempted murder and is now on remand until his next court appearance on August 31.
