Saint Lucia Police are investigating a murder in Vieux Fort.
According to law enforcement sources, a lone gunman shot dead a male individual at the Vieux Fort Fisheries Complex about 8.00 p.m Friday.
The deceased has been identified as Melvin George, said to be in his thirties.
George is reported to have been cleaning fish at the time that he was shot.
Sources told St Lucia Times that the gunman, who was on foot, fled the scene after shooting the victim in the head.
“He just ran through the complex and in running through, shot his victim and kept running,” Saint Lucia Times was informed.
It was reported that the gunman was wearing a ‘hoodie’.
A video that was posted on social media shortly after the shooting shows a body in a pool of blood on the ground while a woman wails in the background.
Saint Lucia has so far recorded three murders for the year.
