The victim of a brazen daylight shooting in Castries Wednesday was hearing voices, his mother says.
The mother made the disclosure in an interview on local television.
Law enforcement officers identified the individual as Ricardo Mc Garron and said Thursday morning that he was ‘stable’ in hospital.
They disclosed that he sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the chest Wednesday morning.
The incident occurred on Victoria Street, Castries
Hot 7 TV News reported Wednesday night that it was on the scene and spoke with the victim’s mother.
“He is a boy – I am not being a hypocrite, there are some parents who put their hands in fire for their sons,” the mother asserted.
However, the distraught woman told Hot 7 television that her son ‘is a very good boy.’
But she disclosed that he experiences ‘his little stress’.
“He would tell me ‘Mommy – I hearing voices.'”
The mother explained that because of the voices, her son would at times ‘trouble the people.’
“The people know about the situation,” she declared.
Hot 7 also interviewed a concerned citizen who said the response time by emergency personnel was worrying.
