15-Year-Old Critical After Vieux Fort Shooting


A fifteen-year-old boy was reported in critical condition after a shooting incident at the Pierrot Gap in Vieux Fort Thursday night.

However, a medical facility has since discharged the boy’s seventeen-year-old brother.

Both siblings sustained gunshot injuries after 7:00 pm under circumstances that were not immediately apparent and are currently under investigation by the police.

One of the teenagers was shot in the arm, while the other sustained an abdominal injury.

Two ambulances responded after the emergency personnel of Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) received a distress call at about 7:28 pm.

The latest shooting adds to a sharp spike in gun violence since the year began.

So far, for 2024, Saint Lucia has recorded seven homicides.

  1. Alt you quick to block ppl comments but not quick to gathering truth and facts…one article y’all saying 51yo got shot in arm and another y’all saying 17yo got shot in arm and already discharged…….you guys really need to stop blocking ppl’s factual comments even if it offends the gov’t of the day….go do some thorough investigation b4 wanting to post articles just to say we had it first.

  2. Them young men of the south have no ambition. They are only living a curse life , smoking crack cocaine, marijuana drinking rum and stealing food from the hard working farmers…. And selling it by the road side …
