Shooting Victim Seeks Help At The Gros Islet Fire Station


A man in his mid to late twenties walked into the Gros Islet fire station about five minutes after midnight on Sunday, indicating that he was a shooting victim.

Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) Communications Officer Stacy Joseph said the man complained of back pain, disclosing that his wounds were due to an alleged shooting incident.

“Upon examination of the area, emergency personnel found that the patient sustained penetrating wounds to the region,” Joseph disclosed.

She explained that SLFS personnel provided emergency medical care and transported the patient to the OKEU hospital in a stable condition.

There are no further details at present.

  1. Second person to seek refuge at the station. I know the first individual was known to be involved in questionable things, but I wonder about this case.

  2. .They always involved in Shooting incidents and pretend its unknown persons who shoot them .The Ambulance Should hsve been out on a Call when he reported at the fire station for assistance

  3. One thing I know for sure everyone know who is committing these crimes in our country. We are all ignorant until it happens to our family.

  4. @Give Jah the Glory you are spot on and correct with your response – St. Lucians are all up in everybody business. Example; Tom bought a car, Jane bought a refrigerator, John is building a house, Peter going with whomever – therefore, they are also very much aware of who the thugs and malvetayees are.
