Police Investigating Two Reckless Endangerment Cases

Police are investigating two cases of reckless endangerment that occurred over the weekend. Shots were fired at a man Saturday on South Shore Road, but no one was injured. However, on Sunday a two-year old girl was shot in an apparent accident and was taken to the hospital for her injuries.

According to police, a 23-year-old man told police he was walking on South Shore Road at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday, when he noticed a man carrying a chrome handgun, dressed in black and donning a black face mask. The victim began running, and the suspect allegedly fired several shots in his direction. The man was unharmed and said the suspect left the scene in a gold-colored vehicle.

The second case involves an apparent accidental gunshot injury that occurred in Estate Prosperity in Frederiksted around 3 p.m. Sunday. According to police, a two-year-old girl was injured and was taken the Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital. Police are investigating the case as an accidental discharge.
