The man who was killed at Grande Revierre this morning previously survived being shot, his grandmother has revealed.
Seame Cherry, 27, reportedly received four gunshots in the wee hours of Saturday morning at Piat, Grande Revierre. He was transported to Victoria Hospital where he died.
His grandmother, Madeline Lecompte says Cherry was living with a bullet in his body after surviving a previous shooting.
St Lucia Times can reveal new details about the victim.
Cherry was raised by his grandmother but returned to live with his mother as he became older.
His mother is currently “very sick” in the United States; two of her toes have reportedly been amputated.
He was expelled from Castries Comprehensive Secondary School for apparent bad behavior, Ms. Lecompte revealed.
When asked what she remembered about her grandson, Ms. Lecompte stated: “He was nice to me. And one thing, I myself, I love my children but I’m not playing. I straighten you up! When time to eat, we eating, when time to beat, we beating because I have to straighten you up where you going wrong.”
Ms. Lecompte said she was unaware of the company that Cherry kept recently or the activities that he engaged in.
However she believes that Cherry was trying to change his troubled ways.
“I think he was trying to behave himself. But not everything they do you does hear, especially I living a distance from him,” she added.
Law enforcement officials say one person is currently in police custody in connection with the fatal shooting.
