Targeted? Gunshot victim in WE attack shot over half-dozen times

Not the actual scene from last week’s reported shooting.

Information to BVI News suggests that last week’s shooting incident on the western end of Tortola was a targeted assault.

Police officially confirmed that one man was injured during the incident and highly placed sources later told our news centre that the victim was shot at least eight times.

It is understood that a number of those gunshot injuries were to the victims torso. The man is being treated at the Dr D Orlando Smith Hospital in Road Town. His medical condition is not known to BVI News at this time.

Since confirming the shooting last week, the police have not provided any additional details. They said investigations are ongoing.

No indication has been given about a possible motive and there have also been no reports of anyone being taken in custody in relation to the incident.

BVI News will provide more information as it becomes available.

    Another one of the side effects of the drug trade , and the these young people still not getting the message ,/ it’s all about the gold chains / fancy cars / power boats, a castle on the hillside and a set of these Spanish jaguarbats, aka whor*s, and suddenly they become super stars overnight, ( a friendly warning ) if you know what these wannabes are dealing in, do not ride or hang out with them, when bullets start flying they don’t pick and choose who to hit
