American tourist robbed, shot in Turks and Caicos Islands

A partner at a top Washington DC law firm was shot and wounded while vacationing in Turks and Caicos with his family.

Michael Jones, 57, was injured when two gunmen broke into a rented beachfront property on Providenciales, the main island of Turks and Caicos, at about 10.00pm Friday, and opened fire.

They managed to get past security by tying up one of the guards with shoelaces.

Jones then confronted one of the suspects when they invaded the property, prompting them to start shooting.

He was airlifted to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where rescuers transferred him to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood.

A spokesperson for the law firm Kirkland & Ellis confirmed to ABC News on Sunday that Jones is a partner.

'Mike Jones, a partner in our Washington, D.C., office, was shot during a burglary while on vacation with his family,' the firm said.
