There was a brutal murder of a honeymooning couple a year or so ago. A group of six US tourists acting badly got into an altracation with a cab driver last year.
Antigua, however is mostly safe. Just be cautious and aware of your surroundings at all times. Remember they want our money and therefore do not like tourist related crime.
