A bar owner shot a burglar in Coolie Town  in the wee hours of Monday morning, police have confirmed.

According to law enforcement officials, the businessman is the owner of a licensed firearm.

The bar owner is reported to have shot the intruder in the right leg after confronting him.

  1. He’s a Lucky guy the Bar owner only work on one Leg .Both legs should have been Shot and upon arrival at Hospital both should have been Amputated.These guys refuse to earn an Honest days work .They enter Hard working persons Shop and Carry what that don’t Belong to them .Its time Citizens of St.Lucia Deal with them .

    • Now that’s a bit harsh. Everyone deserves a second chance. The shot in the leg will have him think about his actions. If he reoffends, then … oh hell, do what you want with him then.

      • A bit harsh! Had the ower not taken action, his death might have been described as a “hit.” A euphemism for cases that the cops can’t figure out. The crook should thank his lucky stars that he was not dispatched to the beyond.

  2. mistake vs. habit ummmmm given that theowner did not have a firearm would you wana calculate who would be on the ground? or probably 6ft?? guess u didnt think of that huh…..

    • Read and comprehend ppl!..mistake vs habbit was talking to robert mugabe and his over reaction of both leg shot and doctors amputating both and not about the bar owner defending his property…sigh….if you ask me he deserve exactly what he got!

  3. After alcohol is back on the market u break and enter a bar to steal a case of whatever and u got shot u never left with the case of whatever…….I am betting you will never think of entering a business that don’t belong to you again

  4. Coolie Town again! Why they like so much alcohol in Coolie Town? They just not cooling out on the rum drinking. Is rum that do the burglar that.
