St. Thomas Shooting Update

I've had a chance to look further into last night's shooting. No one was killed, but two men were injured. According to a cab driver I spoke with who was familiar with what happened yesterday, a young man went hunting for the two men who were shot yesterday in retaliation for the shooting of his brother. The two men who were shot were 21 and 25; one was shot in the arm, the other in the leg. The two car collision apparently had nothing to do with the shooting, but occurred at the same time, probably a result of the drivers attempting to get clear of the gunplay.
The police have said they have no idea about who is involved, although it looks like the local community is quite aware of the circumstances. The local news article gives what few other details are available.
Now we return you to your regularly scheduled Friday afternoon. Next post will be from Tortola, BVI.
