Castries mother in fear after latest Marchand shooting

A Castries mother has said she fears for her life after the latest shooting in Marchand left her son nursing injuries in hospital. 

The woman who did not want to be identified said she is concerned that the gunmen could soon start targeting relatives if they are unable to reach their intended targets.

“Sometimes they cannot get my son, they could get any member of the family,” she stated. “I fear that anybody could get hurt”

The woman said she had no idea why anyone would want to kill her son.

“I feel very sad I don’t want nothing to happen to my son. He’s my favourite son and I love him very much. If anything had to happen to him I don’t know how I would be able to survive,’ she added.

Kelly Joseph, 21, was shot in the groin area Thursday evening. He’s currently admitted at Victoria Hospital.

The circumstances surrounding the incident is unclear. It’s the latest in a string on gangland-style shootings apparently targeting young men in the Black Mallet, Marchand community.

In a separate incident on Sunday night, two men on a scooter are reported to have shot 23 year old Kimbert Lynch as he sat on the railing of the Black Mallet Bridge.

The men are said to have engaged Lynch in conversation before shooting him.

The young man later succumbed to his injuries.

Concerned residents of Marchand believe that the shootings are all connected.

“It is a war that’s going on there,” one resident told the Times, adding that people who live in the area are bracing themselves for more gun violence.

What all the badness for? Fame? Name? History??

      I know right they know nothing about what’s going on people are getting shot innocently OK the boy stood by the road alone he got shot by someone which he didn’t even know would’ve shot him. Obviously if he was expecting it and knew the faces he would’ve run. He didn’t !!!!!!!

    Don’t be so fast to jump on the mother. Would you sell out your son and put him in more trouble? Sometimes its very difficult to see your own child involved in these things and know that you can’t get involved. It’s hard losing a child..espe cially like that…so the shooting may have as well traumatized her..

    Everytime I c dem pics of dem fellas dat get shot. They all look a like. Kinkies, plats or loks, chain in neck, drink in hand, screw face and finger symbol. Guys, be unique n don’t follow the crowd. It hard especially with lil parent support towards that direction but try atleast.

    It’s a sad thing to see young men, who probably grew up in a family background seeing their fathers hustling (you know what i mean) and their mother most likely is home taking care of them. Father gets killed on the hustle, and the cycle continues. most of these young men are extremely smart, however, the family failed them, society and government do not invest in human development programs in St. Lucia, and few of them ever want to attend church. They turn to gangs as a safe haven of protection and a way of living. Cycle continues. What do we do?
