Police are investigating a homicide at Bois Patat, Castries.
According to reports, the lifeless body of a male was discovered in the community Wednesday morning with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.
Just hours earlier, five people had been shot in an incident at Marigot shortly before midnight on Tuesday.
A short video clip of some of the injured on the floor of a house was posted on social media.
Law enforcement officials said the three men and two women appeared not to have sustained life-threatening injuries.
They were all transported to the Owen King European Union Hospital.
It was not clear whether the discovery of the body at Bois Patat and the Marigot shooting were related.
More details later.
