Saint Lucian Arrested In Martinique Amid Double Homicide Probe


According to Martinique media reports, a Saint Lucian was under arrest on Tuesday amid a double homicide investigation.

The online publication France-Antilles Martinique quoted Public Prosecutor Clarisse Taron telling a news conference on Wednesday that the suspect is the alleged perpetrator in the double homicide in the heart of the Dillon district of Fort-de-France on June 15.

On that date, an armed man fatally shot two people and injured three others in front of a well-known bar.

Police described the two deceased, aged 28 and 43, as well-known to law enforcement.

RCI.FM reported that the Saint Lucia suspect in the shooting is 29 years old.

Martinique law enforcement authorities have indicated that the homicide investigation is in its infancy.

But they suspect that the incident was gang-related.
