ST. PETERS–Police are investigating another shooting, this time in the district of St. Peters, where Darnell Thomas was shot by an unknown man Friday morning. Eight police vehicles were seen rushing to the district, as the man is believed to have ties to the Bling Bling crew.

Thomas was transported to the St. Maarten Medical Centre (SMMC) for further treatment and insiders informed The Daily Herald that he did not suffer a major injury. Police circulated the area looking for any signs of the shooter and immediately started questioning possible witnesses.

Police spokesman Chief Inspector Ricardo Henson said, “The victim stated that he was shot by an unknown assailant who had his face covered. After committing this act, the suspect fled the scene on foot.”

“The area was immediately closed off and a crime scene has been established. The victim was treated on the scene by paramedics and transported in stable condition to the St. Maarten Medical Center for further treatment. The Forensic Department came to the scene to collect evidence,” added Henson.
