A medical practitioner later pronounced him dead on the scene.

The other man, identified as a twenty-two-year-old from Morne du Don, was not hit by gunfire but sustained abrasions to his upper and lower limbs.

Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) Communications Officer Stacy Joseph said when emergency personnel responded, they found a man standing at the roadside in the presence of police officers.

She said the man was complaining of body pain.

Joseph said the responders assessed him, but he refused further medical attention and transportation and signed a release form.

She said another man was on his back on the ground.

“An assessment of the patient found on the ground revealed that he was void of vital signs and sustained several penetrating wounds to his body,” the SLFS spokeswoman disclosed.

Mc Garvey Alexander’s death has pushed Saint Lucia’s homicide toll to six so far for the year.

  1. This so called victim has been responsible for most of the shootings that took place in bexon from 2019 – 2021. A few years ago he and his boys were in the process of robbing a couple in bexon when he was suspected by police in plain clothing. After being approached by the police, he opened fire and the police returned Fire injuring him. He was arrested and released three months later to continue his robbing sprees. I don’t feel sorry for him at all, my brother who was a vagrant, lost his life due to this guy and his gang so good riddance..

  2. In addition to those horrifying stats you’ve pointed out. How many convictions (regardless of verdict) have there been?!

    The future for young St Lucian men is bleak.

    The real pandemic in St Lucia, sad to say, is the loss of so many of our young men.

    The COVID committee should be re-purposed with great urgency.

  3. @Asking for a friend. Haven’t you seen the youth of today? If you have seen then it answers your question. Yest we do have an infinite supply because every young person right now idolizes these bad boys and ghetto hoochies. They don’t care about the outcome of their choice only the fact that they are making money and having fun. It doesn’t matter if they have to kill to make the money or have fun they will do it.

  5. For the last 10 or so years we’ve been averaging over 50 a year. That’s 500 or so “bad boys”. Do they have an infinite supply of these characters?

    • There’s your made up statistics and there’s the fact. Google exist for a reason…. The last labor administration saw a downward spiral with the best figure being 28. Stop spreading misinformation.

  6. In the writing you have reported that ” St. Lucia Homicide toll to six so far for the year.” By the way it is written it would imply that you are expecting much more of the same before the year is over. If that be the case, may I ask, What has St. Lucia come to? which is more dangerous, Death by Covid-19 or death by the Barrel of a Gun? it saddens me that young men for whatever reason, or lack of it, are so callous, wouldn’t think twice before taking a life. So today I turn to the Almighty for help for St. Lucia.
