Police Probe Shooting In Babonneau


Police are investigating a shooting that occurred Thursday at Fond Assau, Babonneau.

According to reports, a man in his twenties sustained gunshot injuries at about 8:40 pm.

Investigators recovered multiple spent shells from the scene.

Additional information surrounding the incident is sketchy, and there are no further details now.

In a New Year’s address, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre, who is responsible for national security, expressed the government’s commitment to attacking the problem of gun violence with all available resources.

Pierre also called for the support of the public and all social and Non-Government Organisations.

Saint Lucia recorded 75 homicides last year.

  1. You live by the bullet you die from it. These situations are not isolated ones. It is just a matter of time before it gets nasty. Police needs to up there game, do neighbor surveillance undercover more often and use sniffer dogs more frequent. It may only get worst for the tourism sector if only a tourist get into a cross fire and it happened to hit the international news. The PM is full of shit with just talks. The police don’t have to physically be on the ground in some areas they can stay remotely and make use of drones, night vision system with an active, aggressive squad to pronounce on suspected behavior. Continue to cover all back roads check points strategically areas that exchange trade into another community. Schools needs to be randomly check because that’s a leg also involved in the illicit drugs trade. We cannot turn a blind eye on these things. You can also put communication resources like the app but unless the people can place trust in you, believe in you crime fighting will naturally be on everyone agenda because it serves in the interest for everyone. Minister is immune to law enforcement who are subject to checks because some or close known associates are the very transporters. Setup undercover out side so local ls don’t know who are watching them. Small island like this the security minister is still clueless as to what his duty entails.

  2. Violence begets violence. If a weed pops up in your garden and you don’t rip it off, eventually it will take over the entire yard.

  3. I have to agree with Anonymous. Well said. All those suggestions should be implemented. The criminals are more sophisticated than those in charge.

  4. @ honorable you simple have no comeback answer because you get slimg like a bat unable to find some foolish reasons to defend your goons as if you all a pack of dumb shit heads or just pure wicked. Now ho suck when you came from.
