The V.I.

According to the police, at 4:36 a.m. Oct. 24, the 911 emergency call center dispatched officers to the Four Winds Plaza shopping center in reference to shots fired. Officers traveled to the area and found an unresponsive Black male lying in the shopping center’s parking lot.

Four other victims were treated for injuries sustained in the shooting. They told police they did not know who had shot them or why.

Police said Registe was observed on video surveillance discharging a firearm in the plaza area.
