A Bocage resident has likened the fatal shooting of a young man in the community to an execution, which has shocked the people in the area.
The Bocage resident, whom we shall call Primus Dolor for easy reference, recalled that at about 10 p.m. Monday, people in the area heard a gunshot.
Dolor said he later learned that there was a body on a bed in a house.
Investigators have identified the deceased as eighteen-year-old Terry James.
“To tell you the truth, I don’t know who do it. But we just know they have a youth dead,” the Dolor stated.
Dolor told reporters that the deceased was not from the community but would occasionally visit to ‘cool out,’ have a meal and relax before leaving.
“But this morning there, it was a bloodshed. It was like an execution style they give the guy. The person look like they walk up to the guy in his house and just pop him at the back of his head,” he observed.
“It’s a execution style. It was a guy with no mercy. So what can I say? We just have to be careful here in Saint Lucia because it look like everybody have gun,” Dolor declared.
He called for decisive action against gun violence.
“Every day is a bullet. Every day is a gun thing. I don’t know what’s going on my people,” Dolor lamented.
“I myself ain’t even eat breakfast yet. From the time I hear that my whole belly just turn. I cannot eat. I cannot drink. I lost,” he told reporters.
