0

An 18-year-old St. Thomas man was admitted to emergency surgery at the Roy L. Schneider Hospital early Thursday morning after a confrontation outside a home in Estate Mandahl.
The Source has learned that the unidentified victim, reportedly a robbery suspect in the incident, suffered a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Sources said a Mandahl resident found a red compact car in his driveway when he arrived at home in the pre-dawn hours. He called a friend for help but before the friend arrived, gunfire erupted, reportedly causing injury to one of the suspects.
There was little information available from police Thursday morning about the shooting other than that the victim was transported to the hospital and as of 4 a.m. was listed in critical condition.
No other injuries were reported and it is not clear what the Mandahl resident, who appeared to be the target of a robbery, has told police about the incident that unfolded as he arrived home.
The shooting occurred in the general vicinity of Mandahl Market.
Police have appealed to the community for assistance in solving this latest shooting. Anyone with information should contact investigators at 774-4050 or 911.
