On Sunday, August 27, 2023 about 9:10pm, Police Officers from the Vieux-Fort Police Station responded to reports of a shooting incident at Savannes Bay Vieux-Fort, opposite the Priest Rectory.

Upon arrival at the scene, the Police Officers discovered a black scooter, and approximately three feet away from the scooter, two young male individuals were found lying motionless.

First responders also recovered a number of spent shells at the scene of the shooting.

Personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service attended to the victims and subsequently transported them to the St. Jude’s Hospital via an ambulance.

The victims were later pronounced dead upon arrival at the medical facility by a medical practitioner. The victims have been identified as twenty (20) year-old Dave Edgard of Clarke Street Vieux-Fort, and twenty-one year-old Lufus Evans also of Clarke Street, Vieux-Fort.

  1. Those cockroaches are just in their 20s but all they do is kill each other why can’t they pick up the jobs that pay 2 to 5 EC dollars an hour to buy a piece of land build a house and start a family instead of living a life of crime

  2. I hate to say this – however it appears that St. Lucia is possessed by several demons – you guys need to stop the voodoo, obeah, witchcraft or whatever evil you are engaged in before it’s too late.

    What is the meaning of demons?
    a person considered extremely wicked, evil, or cruel.

  3. Go now, write it on a tablet for them,inscribe it on a Scroll, that for the days to Come,it may be an everlasting witness :
    These are rebellious children of the prostitution,deceitful children were not call for (unwanted pregnancies,spoiled eggs,objects of nobody wants,
    children unwilling to listen to the LORD’S instructions ‼️

    You who are far away,hear what I (God) have done ; you who are near acknowledge my power ❗
    The sinners in the land 🇱🇨 St Lucia are slaves of the slave woman (Eve),are terrfied ;trembling grips the GODLESS : “Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning 🔥❓”

    From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near”…
    John the Baptiste Prepares the way :
    In those days to be “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near”
    This is he who were spoken of through the prophet Isaiah…
    “A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the LORD, make straigth paths for him”…
