Update on Recent Homicides

RUSVM Director of Safety & Security Nolan distributed the following message earlier today. It regards the most recent homicides on St. Kitts. According to the St. Kitts-Nevis Observer, there have now been 31 homicides in the country in 2011.

Faculty, Staff and Students:

As part of our Be in the Know efforts, I would like to share some significant information as it relates to crime in St. Kitts.  Over the past 24 hours there have been two fatal shootings in St. Kitts, which took place in two separate areas surrounding Basseterre (Newtown and St. Johnston).  The matter is currently under police investigation.

Because of the nature of the incidents, there may be other fallout or retaliation.  Although there is no indication that students, faculty or staff will be targets of this retaliation, we urge you to be very aware of your surroundings and each other.

Knowledge of these murders and your own situational awareness will be important as you make decisions about your activities in the coming days.

For more information about these incidents, you can visit any of the local news web sites.  I continue to encourage you to monitor crime by staying up-to-date through public media sources.
