One Man Shot, Another Chopped In Gros Islet Incident

Two men are nursing injuries at Victoria Hospital after one was chopped and the other shot at Riviere Mitan, Gros Islet, law enforcement officials say.

According to reports, both men were involved in an altercation when one approached the other with a cutlass.

An off duty police officer who happened to be nearby intervened, calling on the man with the cutlass to put it down, law enforcement officials said.

However they disclosed that the armed man instead proceeded to chop the other male, whereupon the police officer discharged a round from his service firearm, hitting the assailant in the leg.

Both injured males were transported to hospital via ambulance.

The incident occurred about 4.00 pm, according to reports.

    • Hold your *** ! She is the only public/ civil rights advocate we have, and Lord knows St Lucia needs one. Our police force are not made up of Roman Christian Solders. Who do you have to advocate for you ?? There are Mr. and Mrs. Mary Francis all over the globe fighting for civil rights don’t trust your government. Full respect Mr. John Lewis may God give you the health and strength in your time of need many don’t even know of your greatness.

      • Much respect for Mary Francis…not sure why one would bring her up presently. She calls it as she sees it and that rubs on some people the wrong way…their defense is to be critical. Hope one day she does not have to advocate for you or family. Based on her history, I would not be at all surprise if she looks pasts all your criticism to defend you

  1. Choops. He should hv been shot in the head for attempting to kill another human. Just watch. He will go on to kill someone in 2020.

  2. When a nation has corrupt government the citizens will follow them. Spider is an example to our youths. Guy Joseph is a good example of bobol, with Chastanet there is no speaker in the house and he has a MOM degree. Masters of manatee.
    Can one blame the nation for what they are doing? The answer is no. We are led by example.. DESRUISSEAUX PEOPLE YOU ALL PUT ST LUCIA IN THAT MESS. YOU ALL WILL BE PUNISHED BY GOD.

  3. I’m happy no life was lost. This is insanity ! Almost on a daily basis there is some incident of murder, wounding with intent, robbery, traffic accident or something negative. St. Lucia has become a living nightmare. The young men need to fond ways of settling their disputes and disagreements more peaceably. .
