There they found an unresponsive, pulseless male in a drain.

According to Jn Baptiste, the man had a ‘penetrating wound’ to the head.

As a result, the SLFS crew left the scene in the care of the police.

The police later disclosed that a pathologist pronounced the victim, Emroy Danzie, dead.

The 34 year old resident of Bridge Street, Anse La Raye, sustained an apparent gunshot wound to the head, the police stated.

About 11.03 pm Saturday, an SLFS headquarters crew responded to a report of a shooting at La Toc, Castries.

Spokesman Damian Jn Baptiste said the emergency crew treated a 58 year old male and a 25 year old female.

Jn Baptiste disclosed that both had penetrating wounds.

As a result, the emergency responders transported them to OKEU Hospital in stable condition.

Jn Baptiste reported that the SLFS also responded to four bush fires, one pole fire, five motor vehicle incidents and three physical assaults.

And on Sunday at 1.36 pm, the Micoud fire station responded to a request for help at New Village, Micoud.

A child who had previously been ill was not breathing.

Emergency responders found the 2 year-old male was unresponsive.

But despite their efforts to revive the child while he was being transported to hospital, a medical doctor at St Jude later pronounced him dead.

There were 73 ambulance responses in total for the period under review, including COVID-19 related calls.
