Police officers who have been on vacation leave have been summoned to report to the office of the Police Commissioner, senior law enforcement sources have told St Lucia Times.
According to information, a notice was sent out Friday evening informing the vacationers to report to the office of the Police Commissioner on Monday at 8.00 AM.
The development comes against the backdrop of an upsurge in gun violence.
The latest occurred Friday night in Wilton’s yard, resulting in the death of two males, police said.
The two were identified by law enforcement officials as Yannick Sylvester, alias ‘Coco Boy’ and Bradley Agdomar.
It was reported that four masked individuals entered Wilton’s Yard and opened fire at the two.
A law enforcement officer told St Lucia Times that a number of shots were fired.
According to the official, the gunmen left behind a box that would have contained bullets.
“They dropped the box to show us that they are equipped,” the official asserted.
On Friday about noon, a Bois Patat man sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder when he was hit by a stray bullet.
Hours earlier, a Sunbilt man, Cannis Smith, died from a gunshot wound while another male individual was injured under circumstances that are currently under investigation by the police.
