    It is her vehicle but she wasn’t anywhere around. It has nothing to do with her or with drugs. Stop being so ignorant. And pray for the injured and Matado’s family.

    It was Emma’s nephew driving. He was not in the vehicle at the time. And he is not a gangster and is not in any gang. The person that was targeted wasn’t even injured. You people enjoy talking until its at your door. Its a shame to see videos of this young man struggling for air. The polyclinic is no less than 10 mins away. He could have been rushed there and then put it stable condition and then brought to the hospital. St Lucian’s really need to learn to be more carefully with there dirty mouths.

    why would he be at beach smoken pot drinking at that hour ,nobody said anything bout drug drop offπŸ˜’its suspicious how you would know who was or wasn’t spose to be shot sounds to me like you spilled something , maybe you one got away on boat? its because of snuffs like you we got 45% unemployment. get a honest job, not one you got to be looked over yourshoulder every day.

    It is so sad to see to this day the level of insensitivity that exist amongst St Lucian people. what make people so heartless, who cares whoes van it was, familes are in mourning, hearts are broken and at the rate things are going on here it seems to me any one of us can be next. people we need to grow up and come away from these behaviours. young men were short over the weekend my nephew took my car while I was asleep and wen all the way o ans- la -ray youngers do these things or may be he had permission to use the van who care no one deserve this please stop this and post something that will help the family because frankly speaking your ignorant and inhumane attiude is just so heartbreaking. stop for a moment and if this was a member of my family or maybe you don’t even care about your onw family. Today of these families and say a pray. Think God people. God BLESS YOU ALL.
