The girlfriend of Saint Lucia’s latest homicide victim recalls hearing gunshots on Tuesday, and later discovering that the man she had been with for three years was dead.
“I heard gunshots. I didn’t think it was him,” the girlfriend told reporters.
“He was the only person there for me,” she explained. “They shoot him in his head.”
Police identified the fatal shooting victim as 20-year-old Dennery resident Darnel Dolor, alias “Sick Man” or “5 Bag”.
According to a police release, Dolor was a person of interest in a homicide investigation at the time of his death.
He succumbed after sustaining gunshot injuries to the head at Monkey Town, Ciceron.
