‘Put Down The Guns’ – ECCO Expresses Condolences After Fatal Shooting Of Music Producer

The Eastern Caribbean Collective Organisation for Music Rights (ECCO) Inc. has extended condolences to the family of late Saint Lucia music producer Dayne Felix, while urging those who promote gun violence to lay down their arms.

Felix succumbed to gunshot injuries on Monday.

Preliminary police investigations indicated that a lone gunman shot the 25-year-old at Barre St. Joseph, Castries, where he lived.

“I also want to say it is a sad day when we keep losing our young people, and we keep losing our young creators,” ECCO Chief Executive Officer Martin James stated.

He called on all individuals involved in gun violence activity to put down their firearms.

“Put down the guns. We hear it all the time, you know, but we need to stop it because we are actually damaging our nation. We are retarding our nation,” the ECCO official asserted.

“We want to encourage those producers and creators and those persons to understand that there’s a lot to earn, there’s a lot that could happen. It’s not just financial. You also have that right to speak to that creation and you are actually impacting a generation with your works and what you do,” James declared.

He said the death of Dayne Felix, an ECCO member, was a sad day for music, the creative industry, and Saint Lucia.

“We really want to encourage them to hold strong and be strengthened,” James said regarding the deceased’s family.

He explained that the death of the Saint Lucia music producer was a significant loss to Saint Lucia and the world where his music had begun reaching.

  1. Is the guy who was murdered, last week and his decomposed body found on Monday from Piaye to low class to make news or counted in our homicide statistics. Just maybe as usually this current government’s way of doctoring homicide statistics at play here.

  2. @ TIME WILL TELL…..I AGREE WITH YOU, I ALSO MENTIONED THAT LAST WEEK, UNLESS YOU ARE NOT A TOURIST, A FORIGNER LIVING HERE, A MEMBER OF UPPER CLASS OR A POPO, YOU ARE NOT RECOGNIZED, NO JUSTICE FOR SOME. BUT YET STILL OUR HELP IS NEEDED TO HELP THE POPO, I SAY LET THEM FIGHT THEIR CRIME ALONE. I SAID WHAT I SAID.

  3. This thing of saying people need to put down the gun that is an old saying that doesn’t work in today’s world the authorities will have have to be the one to put the people with these illegal guns down and once the person or persons is being put down then the guns will all fall down but no criminal minded gun slinger will listen to that call and put down their weapon its not gonna happen
