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.

    Another very sad day for a mother a brother a sister a friend. Our young people lives are being shortened because of the radical lifestyle they want to live. They just don’t seem too understand how precious life is.

    Young people I urge you to stop…take a look at what’s happening. It’s not worth it. The bad boy life isn’t worth it.

    My condolences to his family. And may whoever committed this crime be brought to justice.

      My thoughts exactly. Our reporters are so tasteless in their reporting. What do the details of his mother’s illness have to do with anything??

    Those reporters love to sensationalize the news. Most of the times the details are very incorrect. Kindly respect the victim’s family and their privacy. Was it necessary to disclose the health and residence of an uninvolved family member?
