A 32 year old died in his yard Monday night in Vieux Fort in a hail of bullets, police say.
Law enforcement officials identified the victim as Malcolm Celestin, 32.
“There were so many shells on the ground,” an official told St Lucia Times.
Police say the fatal shooting occurred about 8.00 pm.
They disclosed that Celestin was ‘well known’ to law enforcement because officers had arrested him several times for drugs.
Saint Lucia has so far recorded 3 homicides for this year.
There are no further details at this time.
