VISITOR SHOT WHILE REFUSING TO BUY DRUGS

0

A frequent visitor to St. Thomas was shot Wednesday morning outside the Kmart store in Lockhart Garden Shopping Center after he reportedly refused to buy marijuana from two unidentified men.
Deputy Police Chief Theodore Carty said Garfield Perry was shot in the buttocks after a scuffle with his two attackers. Carty said police investigators were told that Perry was attacked and shot after he turned down their offer to buy drugs and after he declined to tell the two whether he was a cruise ship passenger.
The two suspects fled towards the Oswald Harris Court housing community after Perry was shot.
Carty said the victim was to be released from the Roy L. Schneider Hospital after treatment for his injuries. The deputy chief said the investigation is ongoing and urged anyone with information to contact detectives at 774-4050 or 911.
