One Man Reported Shot, Another Arrested Amidst Castries Brawl

One man was reported shot and another arrested for resisting arrest and assaulting the police, amidst a brawl Wednesday evening in Castries.

Video recordings of the incident were posted on social media.

According to the police, they received multiple reports alleging physical assault and the discharge of a firearm at Faux A Chaud, Castries.

It was reported that there was an altercation involving a male who was not from the area and several males who were not, as well as a female from the community and one who was not.

Police spokeswoman Corporal Anne Joseph told HTS Evening News that police officers on arrival eventually were able to locate a male who appeared to have a gunshot injury and sought medical attention for him through the Saint Lucia Fire Service.

Joseph said an ambulance transported the injured man to the Owen King European Union Hospital (OKEUH).

HTS Evening News quoted Joseph as saying  that the police officers on the scene radioed for backup from the Special Services Unit (SSU).

The police spokeswoman disclosed that the officers conducted a search of a vehicle.

But she explained that although the officers obtained compliance for the search, a male individual threatened them and hurled insults at them.

Joseph said a decision was made to arrest him, but he resisted and assaulted one of the officers.

The man was eventually taken into police custody.

Corporal Joseph said the police were on the scene to maintain law and order.

She commended her colleagues for their professionalism and restraint and indicated that if citizens have an issue with officers executing their lawful duties, there is legal recourse.
