0

St. Croix suffered its first homicide of the new year Wednesday night.
Melford Selkridge, 27, was shot once in the chest as he walked out of his girlfriend’s house in Mon Bijou at approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday, said Deputy Police Chief Novelle Francis.
Francis said police received a call at 10:21 p.m. of possible shots fired. When they arrived they found Selkridge, who also lives in Mon Bijou, with a single gunshot wound to his chest. Selkridge was transported to Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Francis said investigators have neither suspects nor motive in the shooting. Investigators are also unsure whether the shot that killed Selkridge was fired from a vehicle or by someone on foot.
Francis urged anyone with information to call the Investigation Bureau at 778-2211, ext. 4530 or Emergency 911.
