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.

Scene of shooting

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.

Cannis Smith

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.

  1. Wait, am all for safety, but u telling me the force has to call officers from their leave to combat the crime in little castries? What if it had to be a outbreak of war(god forbid) in more than one constituency?? How will the police force handle this? Damn!! our ass is grass! U see that now mary?? If u see? And all of this we have to do without the help of the US Government. If the orc had continue we not have to be dealing with the thugs now, they should have eracted all of them thug rats.

  2. Wait…do you plan to call back DeLeon? Mr. Commissioner you have all the details regarding Kimberly’s death. Mr. DeLeon’s best friend and partner in crime M. James is your CLOSE BUDDY.

  3. Mr. Police chief, Mr. MINISTER Francis, MR. PM, Miss Mary and others you see? now you have to disturb or deprive our hard working officers of Thuir leave; is that right? or are we in Crisis? Well continue listening to your allies, let them decide for our indépendant state, and you will see our state! please listen to the masses; bring back the orc!

  4. The blame should be on those who went to open their mouths and vomit to the US Embassy which lead to further investigations by higher authority in the US. This took the biggest turn on crime in the Caribbean especially St. Lucia and leads in politics trying to gain positions in office. Not our Police Force or the Commissioner.

  5. WHERE THE HELL IS THE POLICE IN SAI T LUCIA.
    ALL WE SEE IS THE CITY POLICE PATROLING AND TRAFFIC WARDENS ISSUING USELESS TICKETS WHILE PEOPLE DIES USELESSLY.
    THERE WAS NO REASON NOT TO HSVE SSU PATROL ON THR CHAUSSE RD. ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
    WHERE IS THE MINISTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY, THE POLICE AND THE PRIME MINISTER?

  6. Whist i applaud the COP on recalling the officers to try to bring some stability back in the city the big, however, we have an even bigger problem in the south. Yes the south. For the pass 8 month i have been passing in the area of your southern coast guard base,( yes i have been watching,), and have observed that there is no coast guard boat down there. What is happening what is the government doing about this situation. This is so easy for drug and guns to come into out once beautiful island. Come on COP and Government help our coast guard with what has to be done to protect and help is curbing the entry of those illegal stuff into St Lucia….Give them the tools to do their work.
