Babonneau man survives gun attack

A Babonneau man is lucky to be alive after he was shot multiple times in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

The shooting reportedly occurred at around 2am at Chassin, Babonneau.

The victim has been identified as 28-year old Johnny Bert Alphonse.

Law enforcement sources tell St Lucia Times that Alphonse was walking home from a party when he came under attack.

Gunmen, apparently hiding in bushes in a poorly lit area, opened fire on Alphonse, striking him four times in the leg.

Alphonse was transported to Victoria Hospital. He is reported to be in a stable condition.

Police investigations are ongoing.

      Somebody gets “shot,” raped or “robbed”, not “short” or “rub”…use spell check on your computer if you can’t spell or use words in their proper context.

    What is wrong with these people garcon. No regard for people’s lives. You all need to do something constructive with your lives then you wouldn’t have to waste. Seek the almighty in your life. Say the Lord’s prayer and commit yourselves to achieving. I feel sorry for your family and worst if you have children cause history has a horrible habit of repeating itself and will be your children that will suffer. Wake up!

    Murder, rape and gun related crimes are prevalent in the news. Where are the voices, supported by the relevant actions, to assuage the people’s concerns and fears from the apposite authorities? The poor lighting of many residential areas gives cover to predators of crime. Walking at nights is a life-threatening hazard for all citizens and residents. The apathetic response from government in light of record murders and lawlessness is truly appalling. Time for robust actions against this relentless criminal assaults is NOW!

    Please cut trees hanging over the roads especially the main road by Marisule junction and bushes being used for rapists and thieves to hid. Please Jesus watch over St Lucia and destroy all evil over this beautiful island we pray.

    Of course we have to hold the government accountable. They are responsible to our safety. What you this Herman Gill Francis job is? Why do you think at election time they promise to make St Lucia safer? It is political. We have to hold the policy makers responsible.

    The government has everything to do with the crime situation. Stop saying the government is not to be blamed. They are. Here were cameras everywhere at one time, where r they now. Its like the guys go to bodelais get a good lawyer then back on the streets. What about putting stuff in place to punish them no goods. Bring back hanging..

    Here is an analogy: Your are doing renovations on your house and your contractors are not doing the job to you liking. You sit down and complain to your friends and family about how poor of a job and how you are dissatisfied with the work yet do nothing about it. Your house is crumbling, the paint is wrong….a hazard and yet still you do noting about it but blame the contractor cause he is the expert and you gave him that responsibility so its his fault – not yours.

    Everyone is to be blamed. You, me, the government. St. Lucia is our home. It is time we put aside our political differences and come together to address a problem that is affecting every single one of us. It is time we take the blame and take responsibility for our country. What can we do as citizens to help solve this problem?

    Pray for the nation, for your community, for your neighbourhood and for your family, friends and yourself.
    The Devil is angry, looking for lives to destroy but remember that God is the Almighty, the King of all king and Lord of all lords.

    There is nothing we can do, nor the government, to stop crime. The Bibles says that criminality will increase in these last days. The devil is angry cause his time is short, so he is trying to destroy all humanity. Let’s keep praying for children, our country, the government and St Lucians on a whole. Things that have to happen, eyes have not seen, not ears heard, what will take place before Jesus comes. Read the book of Revelation.
