ST. THOMAS — A man was shot to death in the vicinity of the Edward Wilmoth Blyden Terminal at 11:25 p.m. on Saturday, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte has announced.

The 911 emergency call center immediately dispatched officers to the scene after being alerted by a resident. Upon their arrival, officers met an unresponsive Black male lying on the ground next to a U.S. Customers and Border Patrol vehicle, Mr. Dratte said.

Details on the incident remain scant; it was not clear whether the suspect was on foot or in a vehicle when the shooting occurred. The V.I.P.D. said the incident is being investigated by the police force’s Major Crimes Unit.

The deceased was identified by next of kin as 29-year-old Curtis Q. Fredericks.

The V.I.P.D. is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the Major Crimes Unit at 340-774-2211 ext. 5569, or 340-714-9830. You may also contact Crime Stoppers USVI with an anonymous tip here.

Correction: May 19, 2019

The V.I.P.D. issued a corrected version of its release stating that the incident occurred at 11:25 p.m., not 11:25 a.m. as the previous release had included. We’ve updated the story to reflect the correct information.
