Double homicide in Vieux Fort

A double homicide in Vieux Fort is currently under investigation by the Police.

Two men were gunned down in Bruceville in the wee hours of this morning according to reports reaching the Times.

The identities of the men are unknown at this time.

Times sources had warned late last month when two men were shot dead in the same community, that there would have been an escalation of violence as a result of reprisal killings.

That July 23, 2016 shooting was carried our by two masked men on foot.

The victims of that shooting were identified as Junior Gilbert and Miguel Theodore, both believed to be in their late twenties.
