Mon Repos businessman Andrew Joseph has succumbed to his injures at St Jude Hospital, sources close to the family have revealed.
Joseph died Monday evening after 6.00 pm, the sources disclosed.
He was wounded on Saturday evening when two armed bandits attacked the minimart he operated in Mon Repos.
The 76 year old proprietor of Andrew’s Minimart was shot in the lower abdomen during the the robbery and was rushed to St Jude Hospital.
The attack on the senior citizen has been greeted by outrage in his community where residents say he was known as a very helpful individual who extended credit to many.
Sources told St Lucia Times that the bandits who robbed his business place escaped with some petty cash.
“A few coins,” one irate individual familiar with the incident said.
On Monday law enforcement officials said that two individuals had been assisting them with investigations into the armed robbery.
