0

The St. Thomas teen-ager who was shot in the head early Thursday morning in Estate Mandahl has died of his injuries.
Deputy Police Chief Theodore Carty said the victim died about 12 hours after he was wheeled into emergency surgery for massive head injuries.
The second murder victim of the year in this district has been identified as 18-year-old Kareem Setorie. Police released no other information about him.
Mandahl resident Richard Walker had arrived at his home around 1 a.m. to find a red compact car in his driveway. After yelling to the two occupants of the car to leave, he called a friend for help but before the friend arrived, gunfire erupted. Walker said he ran from the area to avoid being hit.
When police arrived at the scene, Setorie was found slumped across the passenger seat of the red Honda Civic with a bullet wound to the head.
Police officials said late Thursday that the case is under active investigation and the department's major crime unit has taken the lead on it. This is the third killing in the territory this year.
Anyone with information should contact police at 774-2196, 774-4050 or the emergency number, 911.
