Police suspect that robbery could have been the motive behind Saturday’s fatal shooting in Vieux Fort of a man they identified as Lawrence Marcellin.
A family member however identified the deceased as Lawrence Mathurin.
“Seems like a robbery attempt,” an official familiar with the case told St Lucia Times.
Investigators are reported to have recovered an undisclosed sum of money which was not found by the killer or killers.
According to information, the deceased did daily cash deposits for a business owner in Vieux Fort.
He was shot multiple times about 6.00 pm near S&S in Vieux Fort.
A heart wrenching video posted on social media shows a male individual on the ground writhing in pain.
He seems to be making a valiant effort to raise himself up but fails as members of the public who have gathered around engage in animated conversation.
“He is going to die,” one male voice declares in Saint Lucian kweyol.
The deceased, whom police say was also known as ‘Short Man’, is said to have been 51 years old.
