A man who is reported to have been shot by a security guard during a robbery attempt at Valley Cold Storage at Cul de Sac has died, a law enforcement source has confirmed.
The deceased has been identified as Kyle Clement.
According to reports, a Security Guard opened fire after several men attempted to smash their way into the Valley Cold Storage building one evening at the height of Tropical Storm Kirk over a month ago.
According to a company official, the guard fired several rounds after one of the men attacked him.
All of the men are said to have been armed with either machetes or sledge hammers.
One of the intruders, identified as Kyle Clement, was reported to have been hit in the arm and neck and was paralysed from the neck down.
He had been in the intensive care unit of Victoria Hospital since then, a source familiar with the case told St Lucia Times.
Clement is reported to have died Friday morning.
