A Dennery resident is dead after a police shooting Friday afternoon, a senior law enforcement official has confirmed.
The official told St Lucia Times that an investigation is currently underway.
Reports from Gadette, Dennery, say a police officer intervened in a dispute between two male individuals in the area.
HTS Evening News quoted a source as indicating that the two men were involved in an argument.
But when the argument escalated, they began hurling stones at each other, the source disclosed.
Residents say the police eventually intervened, with the result that an officer shot one of the men who died at the scene.
One resident said all of the individuals involved were from the same community of Gadette.
