About 2:30 a.m., near Peynier Street, Castries officers had cause to discharge rounds of ammunition in the direction of a male suspect, who sustained injuries.

Police Officers on patrol had earlier attempted to bring a vehicle to a stop for a traffic infraction.

The driver drove away and eventually abandoned his vehicle. A foot chase ensued, and in an attempt to elude the officers, the suspect discharged his weapon at the officers, causing officers to utilize lethal force.

A Taurus pistol and live rounds of ammunition were recovered from his person.

The suspect a thirty-year-old (30) resident of Ciceron, Castries, is currently admitted at a local medical facility in stable condition.

Initial inquiries have uncovered that the suspect has an outstanding Warrant of Commitment on Conviction for the crime of Possession of Firearm in his name (name to be released following charges).

Additionally, the suspect has failed to comply with a Court Order to pay a fine of sixteen thousand dollars (XCD16000.00) following his conviction.

  1. The cops are putting their lives in jeopardy to protect us who have a right to life including criminals. However, one may choose to forfeit his right to live, when he/she infringes on another human’s right to life. Police everywhere have a right to defend themselves when their lives are threatened. Criminals have the same human rights . They certainly do not have more rights than law abiding citizens.

  2. @ Senior good request!!!!! However you will wait in vain. She is bias on UR. Again i say only when it reaches her door step she willthink and express herself differently.
    My 2 cents

  3. Can you imagine, he’s out and about doing his business and the police has to have such an encounter with him for a second time. What exactly is going on in this country? Watch out people we are heading into some serious times this is getting to common place now and the moral fabric of the country is slowly eroding. God help us all. I never thought I’d see this day that the lovely country I grew up in playing on the streets and feeling safe has come to his. Bravo to the polices officers who risk their lives to deal with this menace each day glad he was stopped and I hope this time you don’t allow him to walk the streets again with just a fine.
