A grieving relative has sounded a warning about people’s associates, following Monday night’s fatal shooting at Cul de Sac.
Tony Edmund, 25, died in a hail of gunfire about 9.30 pm, according to police.
Officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
They are also trying to determine a motive.
Kerdidra Edmund, a cousin of the victim, described the deceased as having been a loving and helpful person.
She told St Lucia Times someone called her Tuesday morning to inform her that Tony had died from multiple gunshot wounds.
But she said she knows nothing about the circumstances.
“Everybody knows him to be loving and kind,” Kerdidra said of her dead cousin.
She also said Tony was well loved in the community of Roseau.
Police say he was originally from that area.
However, Kerdidra asserted that although someone may not be a bad individual, it is important for them to analyse the people they associate with.
According to the cousin, people need to ‘filter’ their associates.
“You might not be a bad person but whoever is around you might be a bad person and you might be the unlucky person at the time of the incident,” the cousin stated.
Kerdidra told St Lucia Times that Tony’s death was a hard blow for the family, especially his mother.
