Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: Virgin Islands   USA   Mon. Apr. 26, 2004
Summary: Officer Cuthbert Chapman was shot and killed during a robbery while moonlighting at a local fast food restaurant.

An armed suspect entered the restaurant at approximately 11:00 pm, jumped over the counter, and demanded money. Officer Chapman drew his service weapon and confronted the man. Three more men entered the restaurant from the rear and opened fire on Officer Chapman from behind, striking him several times.

Despite being seriously wounded, Officer Chapman was able to return fire but did not strike the suspects. The suspects fled the scene without taking any money. Officer Chapman was taken to Luis Hospital where he remained for several days before being flown to a hospital in Puerto Rico. He was expected to recover, but his condition suddenly deteriorated and he succumbed to his wounds.

Two of the suspects were arrested approximately two months after the shooting. The remaining two suspects remained at large but were eventually apprehended approximately 2 years later in the United States. All four men were charged with several charges, including murder.

Officer Chapman had served with the Virgin Islands Police Department for 14 years.
