Police Probe Shooting In Piaye

spot_img

Police are investigating a shooting in Piaye, Laborie, on Sunday in which a male individual sustained a pelvic area injury.

Vieux Fort fire station emergency personnel responded after learning of the incident at about 7:10 pm.

Responders found the victim by the roadside and transported him to St. Jude Hospital in stable condition.

The shooting is the latest in a gun violence spike, prompting the Saint Lucia Medical and Dental Association (SLMDA) recently to express concern over the country’s crime trend.

The SLMDA observed that the crime surge threatens the safety of citizens and places an unprecedented strain on the medical sector.

In addition, the organisation urged the government and all stakeholders to unite and implement a holistic approach to addressing crime, combining law enforcement efforts with community outreach programs and social initiatives.

  1. Eh eh all up in Piaye too we got guns baby, we got gun, in every little hole. No one administration can stop it, no one man can stop it St Lucian’s are the ones destroying St Lucia not your respective government. They are the ones sending down the guns to be used against their fellow Lucian brothers and sisters plain and simple. Some or many can bawl about what the government is not doing, as long as St Lucian’s continue to supply the guns it’s an uphill battle. Nobody don’t to call them out, everyone’s afraid and walking on eggshells against our own people well I am not afraid St Lucia does not have a gun factory, we do not produce ammunition OUR OWN ST LUCIANS ABROAD ARE THE ONES FOSTERING GUN VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY. YES I SAID IT !!……. AND WITHOUT APOLOGY. Fools like Allan Chastanet writing crap ass garbage on facebook taking about St Lucia “is under siege and citizens need to unite”, along with his daily hacks calling for the same, WHEN WILL YOU FOOLS CALL OUT DIASPORANS ST LUCIANS FOR THEIR CONTINUED AIDE AND ABETTING, FOSTERING AND FACILITATING THE GUN VIOLENCE HERE, you know why it never happened to date BECAUSE YULL A BUNCH OF COWARDS WALKING ON EGGSHELLS. You all know the drill already by now, some of you clowns refuse to read the memo as it pertains to the new normal HOLD YOUR BREATH ITS ONLY MONDAY you will need your strength for the rest of the week OR FOR LATER TODAY, because this is how things are now settled in St Lucia going forward the new normal THE GUN get use to it.

  2. “OUR OWN ST LUCIANS ABROAD ARE THE ONES FOSTERING GUN VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY. YES I SAID IT !!……. AND WITHOUT APOLOGY”

    For you information guns are also coming in to St. Lucia via many other avenues. I know of many law abiding citizens in the diaspora who have no desire to be involved and or associated with criminals or criminal activity – because they would put their citizenship in great jeopardy. Remember the neighboring islands where land and sea divide has always been a breeding ground for moving guns and drugs. In addition, if you are absolutely certain that the folk abroad are supplying – you should work with your government to put policies and procedures in place for 100% inspection of incoming goods/barrels/boxes etc. etc. etc.

  4. @Anonymous “For my information guns are also coming in to St Lucia via several other avenues” Oh pilgrim if you have such full knowledge of this, did you work/inform your government back then to implement policies and procedures in place for 100% inspection of incoming goods/barrels/boxes etc.etc.etc. And the answer is HELL NO !….But instead you have made it your quest for unrest and up evil of this government on a daily basis ? St Lucia’s uptick in gun violence did not started with the present government, it stated under the under Allan’s Chastanet reign of terror. Not all in the diaspora are sending weapons to St Lucia, but you can’t be so naive el Simpleton to believe it’s not happening. YOU HAVE COWARDLY REFUED TO CALL OUT THE DIAPORANS FOR AIDING AND ABETTING, FOSTERING AND FACILITATING THE GUN VIOLENCE HERE. I REST MY CASE .

  5. @ Dishonorable Loo Lowgrade. Gun violence 2.0 is the expected norm. It’s a sign “duh patty” has thrown in the towel. It’s also an acknowledgement that General Pierre is lousy at the job. He took a stab at is failing miserably. Continuing with the half-baked argument that the gun threat comes from the Diaspora, why hasn’t General Pierre strengthen penalties? He definitely is asleep at the wheel.
    St. Lucia will never be reduced to your expectations. “Duh patty” will be kicked out of office first before we live like caged animals. I sense that you see the writing on the wall, and you are afraid to come to terms with the obvious. Dear Leader sucks.

  6. @Poodle Dog…..I am more Honorable than you in every way any day. At least I call it out for what it is and not sugar coating my stance COWARDLY as if I am in political office because I lack a the balls and fortitude as you, only the PM you have strength for. I said what I said And Without APOLOGY. You can’t and don’t speak for all St Lucian’s in retrospect to their immigration stance, a criminal mindset is just that “a criminal mindset “ and there are St Lucian’s near and far with such intent. Yes this is our NEW NORMAL, UWPEES or Supreme Leadership this our NEW NORMAL. I hope you are not holding your breath Clown, the night is still young.

  7. The SLP is a cult, don’t you see that? Everyone is quiet when they in power. The UWP is full of crooks but not one can be penalised up to this point. Low grade Lucian does not understand the flow of drugs and guns from South to North America. The crime surge did not start under Chas it only continued. The surge in crime started between 1997 and 2001 and this is a fact.
