Crew in St. Maarten, keep your belongings close and your hands closer.  


According to local publication The Daily Herald, a man was shot near Scotiabank/Simpson Bay Yacht Club Marina early morning Monday, February 5. 


The Saint Maarten Police Force reports on its Facebook page that the victim, upon leaving a sports bar, was offered a lift by two unknown men driving a small car. After arriving at the final destination, they demanded money from him. 


“After telling them he had no money, he was shot by one of the men in his left hand,” reads the statement. “The victim then ran towards the security booth of the yacht club, from where the police were notified.” 


The victim was reportedly treated at the scene and then transported to St. Maarten Medical Center, where he remained as of yesterday for further treatment and observation.  


The forensic department collected evidence at the scene, and detectives are currently investigating the incident.
