Man Shot To Death Outside The Lyme Night Club In Princesse (UPDATE)

UPDATE: VIPD Public Information Officer Kevin Jackson at about 7:26 a.m. this morning issued a press release which falls in line with The Consortium’s report, and added that the victim was struck several times by unknown assailants and succumbed to his injuries on the scene. The victim’s name was not released.


ST. CROIX — A man who goes by the moniker “Uncle Roy”, who sources say is no stranger to the law, was shot to death in the parking lot of The Lyme nightclub located across the Dept. of Education in La Grande Princesse, VI Consortium can confirm. The incident occurred at about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

A Consortium reporter arrived on the scene at about 6:05 a.m., but police refused to release details of the incident, with one detective stating that he was not allowed to talk to the media. Nonetheless, sources who were at the club last night at an all black, annual event, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak, made known what occurred.

According to these sources, at about 3:30 a.m., while the all black affair was ongoing, gunshots rang out outside the nightclub situated in the old Nissan dealership building, causing a flock of partygoers, who were in the parking lot when the homicide occurred, to rush inside. A security guard then made his way outside to investigate the matter, and after realizing what had happened, returned to the building and temporarily locked the door in an effort to protect those who were inside.

On the scene this morning, detectives and police officers were in the cordoned off area, where a sole, bullet-riddled  gold Honda Civic was located, with what appeared to be the victim’s blood on the floor near the vehicle. Sources say the identity of the suspect remains unknown, and police have yet to release the name of the victim.

I wear many hats, I suppose, but the one which fits me best would be journalism, second to that would be radio personality, thirdly singer/songwriter and down the line. I've been the Editor-In-Chief at my videogames website, Gamesthirst, for over 5 years, writing over 7,000 articles and more than 2 million words. I'm also very passionate about where I live, the United States Virgin Islands, and I'm intent on making it a better place by being resourceful and keeping our leaders honest. VI Consortium was birthed out of said desire, hopefully my efforts bear fruit. Reach me at [email protected].
