Feb. 21, 2002 – The second suspect wanted by St. Croix police in connection with Monday night's fatal shooting at the Haborview public housing community has surrendered to police.
Lt. Gergory Bennerson, the Police Department's chief investigator, confirmed that Lenroy "Bend Up" Benjamin had turned himself in on Wednesday at Patrick Sweeney Headquarters.
"We executed the warrant we had for him and the arrest went down without incident," he said.
Benjamin, like the other suspect in the case, Dariel McIntosh, will face charges of first-degree murder. Additional charges may be lodged as well, as the investigation takes shape, according to Bennerson.
Benjamin is being held without bail pending an initial court appearance.
The community is continuing to provide detailed information on what happened Monday night between buildings four and five of Harborview, Bennerson said Thursday morning.
"We are actively investigating the shooting and will not rest until we know exactly what happened and all who were involved," he added.
The shooting left 31-year-old Donald Lewis dead and David Encarnacion clinging to life in Centro Medico in Puerto Rico after undergoing emergency surgery on Tuesday night. Encarnacion remains in critical condition.
Bennerson urged anyone with information to contact investigators at 778-4950 or the police emergency number, 911.
