A seventeen year old male was shot dead Saturday morning in the Georgeville area of Castries.
Then deceased has been identified as Akim Antoine, alias ‘Kodak’.
His aunt, Cleo, told St Lucia Times he was like a son to her.
She called for justice to be meted out to his killer or killers.
Cleo described Antoine as a loving child.
She asserted that she was not making the statement simply because of her relationship to the deceased.
“I never know him to be arrested by the police or be in a gang,” the aunt explained.
She said Antoine was a ‘talker’.
“He will say: ‘I will shoot you’, but to take action – he was a coward. He would run away,” Cleo recalled.
She said Antoine was shot about 5.00 am and stayed on the ground for about an hour before eventually succumbing.
Cleo said she was not aware of the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting of the seventeen year old.
