Relatives of Saint Lucia’s latest murder victim, identified as Charles Ramsay, 33, have expressed bewilderment over his fatal shooting.
The victim’s sister, Kertama Ramsay, described him as a hardworking man.
She explained that the deceased said he was going to pick up his two motorcycles at the police station.
According to the sister, about half an hour after her brother left, news came that he had been killed on Broglie Street, Castries about 1.00 p.m.
Ramsay is reported to have been in the company of his brother when an assailant walked up to him and opened fire.
The Marchand resident died on the spot.
“One thing about him he would always gather us together, pray with us. He never liked violence,” the sister stated.
She recalled that the deceased was also a generous individual.
Dayna Felix, who identified herself as the girlfriend of the brother of the deceased, declared that Chad Ramsay looked for trouble with no one.
“Chad was working to buy what he needs. He had his child to take care of and to me, they just take his life just like that,” Felix lamented.
“We asking for justice for Chad,” she said.
Felix explained that everyone was upset and touched by the killing.
“Everybody knows Chad as a good person,” she asserted.
“Chad always speaking to people. Chad always praying with the fellows in the yard. Chad coming in the morning telling them ‘Messieurs leh we pray’,” Felix recalled.
She said the family wanted justice in connection with the fatal shooting.
“I don’t think it should go just like that,” Felix declared.
Saint Lucia has so far recorded nine homicides for the year.
Just this week, Lance Camille aka “Pestro’ died after being stabbed at a bar in Anse Ger, Micoud .
The incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
