A forty-one year old man, identified by law enforcement sources as Sherwin Auguste, known as Shervy, has been shot dead at Ravine Poisson.
According to information, the incident occurred at around 9. pm.
Sources told St Lucia Times that so far, no motive has been determined for the fatal shooting of the Vanard resident.
However a resident of the area said that apparently the victim was by a shop when the assailant, dressed in black, came up to him.
“People say they heard six shots and then the guy ran down the road into a car,” the resident stated.
“The shopkeeper got a shot in her leg I am told, and is at the hospital right now and the guy was on the ground. I could see two shots visibly – one on his right side by his upper rib cage and the other one on his right shoulder,” the resident said, adding that the victim was bleeding from the mouth.
“Everybody is in shock,” the resident added.
