Robbery at the Jump Up Casino: death of a gunshot victim 


At around midnight on June 6, three gunmen burst into the Jump Up Casino and threatened everyone, including employees, to receive money. They shot and injured two employees. 

A police officer, not on duty but present on the scene, had responded and touched one of the robbers, a young 20 year old resident on the French side, who died from his injuries.

Sint Maarten police said in a statement on Sunday July 22 that one of the victims, YB, a casino employee, also died of his gunshot wounds.

Given the seriousness of the facts, the casino management had offered a reward of $ 2000 to anyone who provided reliable information to the police, leading to the arrest and conviction of the other culprits. She has just increased the amount of this award to $ 10.

Sint Maarten Police say people with information can dial + 1721-556 7498 or send a private message to their Facebook page. “The agent who takes calls on this phone will guide the caller through a process that must be followed so that they can provide their information anonymously,” she explains.
