Saint Lucia police are investigating a shooting incident in Gros Islet on Monday that left one man in his twenties dead.

According to reports, he sustained a single gunshot wound along Dauphin Street.

Saint Lucia Fire Service spokeswoman Stacy Joseph told St. Lucia Times that a Gros Islet fire station rescue unit responded after learning of the incident at about 3:04 pm.

Joseph explained that the station ambulance was on an emergency mission in Babonneau.

She said when the responders arrived on the scene, they found that the victim had no vital signs.

An ambulance from fire service headquarters also rushed to the scene.

However, Joseph said a doctor the police had summoned pronounced the victim dead.

  1. Their petty, stupid war costing us a lot of tourists… Thinking they grown and acting like children who wants another child’s toy or didn’t get their way. Tantrums like toddlers…but with guns. The ignorance is baffling!

  2. Them man refuse to go and look for a job. It is better to go and work for 3 EC dollars an hour then to get involve in a life of crime

  3. With no details Lucians just there making comments. The guy was not and is not part of any gang. A young man who used to wash vehicles to make a money and sleep on the side of the road.

  4. Lucians are so judgmental and lack compassion. Wait until a child or brother or sister of yours is murdered then see how you would feel. Many harsh, harsh people with the biggest (fake) smiles.

  5. Perspective and WOW you are spot on.

    It is sad when someone who is healthy and young loses their life suddenly, whether accidentally or by murder. We do not know the person but we quick to say that they were involved in crime, Tanto, Tanto.

    More importantly, does the victim have a name, was he from Gros-Islet or Piton Flor? Its amazing how an inmate at Bordelais was in a row with the authorities and his name is posted several times. However, we have persons who escape policy custody, are persons of interest in murder charges on the run, but no mention of their names.

    Inconsistency is the only consistent thing in St Lucia. Lord Help us

  6. Lucian Lowgrade, your boss said it himself, he is not responsible for the day to day running of the police force but what he is responsible for, is the policies that govern the police force.
