Man Shot in Hand
July 10, 2012
Police on St. Thomas are investigating the circumstances surrounding a man who was shot in his hand.
Police were on patrol in the Fourwinds Plaza area when an occupant of a black Ford Explorer flagged the police vehicle. Inside were two people and the male had a gunshot wound to his left hand.
The victim told police that he was taking out the garbage from his home in Estate Tutu and he saw a vehicle drive near him and three shots were discharged. He said he ran home and realized he was shot. The victim then refused to answer any additional questions asked by police.
He was taken to the Roy Lester Schneider Regional Medical Center for treatment. Medical staff told police that a large amount of gun powder residue was found near the wound which may indicate that the gunshot was self inflicted. The case is being followed up by the Criminal Investigation Bureau detectives.
