Man Found Shot to Death in Havensight Parking Lot on St. Thomas

A man was found shot to death in a parking lot in Havensight Saturday on St. Thomas, the V.I. Police Department reported.

Before the man was found, concerned citizens had called 911 to report shots fired in the area of the Havensight parking lot, according to the police report.

When responding officers arrived on scene they found the body of an unresponsive Black man lying in the parking lot with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds about his body, the police report stated.

Emergency Medical Technicians also arrived on the scene and checked the man for vitals and concluded that he did not have any signs of life, the report stated.

The man was positively identified as 31-year-old Cursim Hansen by his next of kin, police said.

Hansen’s death marks the 18th homicide on St. Thomas and the 33rd for the territory, according to the Source Homicide List.*

The Source Homicide List is a chronological log of the homicides recorded in 2023 in the U.S. Virgin Islands, as reported by the VIPD. Cases are broken down by island. While this listing is based on VIPD reports, the Source does not include suicides or vehicular homicides in its listing, which the police and some other media do. This can lead to a discrepancy in the number of incidents reported.
