The 13 year old who was shot dead in Desrameaux, Gros Islet, on Saturday was ‘excited’ about the prospect of returning to school Monday, his mother, Natalie Edward, has disclosed.

Edward said that her son, Rohan Greg Louison, had been bought new footwear the day before he died.

She recalled that the deceased had returned from church when his cousins and nephews broke the news to him that his father had bought him a second bicycle.

Edward said she was told that her son was going to get a flat tyre fixed when tragedy struck.

13 year old Louison and Edward’s 19 year old nephew, Callis Benjamin, were both shot dead on Saturday afternoon.

(Callis Benjamin)

“What I understood, I don’t know how true it is, I understood – because the other one who got killed is my nephew – I understood there was an exchange of words and bullets started firing and my nephew ran. They shot him and they came back. They tell me my son was there looking at the people and they ask him: “Why are you watching?’ I don’t know if he answered or something so, but the one at the front send the gun at the back for a younger one and ask him to shoot him. I don’t know how true it is.”

Edward said the death of her son and her nephew on the same day was very painful and hard to bear.

The 13 year old, who would have been 14 this month, was a Form Two student of Vide Bouteille Secondary School.

  1. These young men have no respect for people lives. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time can cause u your life. I feel so hurt, I too have a son and to say I don’t feel this mother’s pain would be a lie. Be strong hun. I know its difficult, but the father won’t give you nun u can’t endure. Pray without ceasing. God alone can give you strength. And to those guys out there one day you all will shoot the wrong person and that person will send u all and drown you all selves in the sea.. That’s y I don’t feel sorry for sum of u on the streets like dogs… Smh.

      • Josito Mateo is the same one who used to previously call himself ‘Sad but True’.
        Remember him? He had a sick obsession with Chastnet.
        Now operating under a different name.

    • Josito Mateo u are probably the most ignorant jackass in st lucia to make such an asinine statement …oh papa

      • Yall need to shut yall pie hole! Josito is damn right…on platform Chastanet said Kenny couldn’t deal with crime but he can. Yall voted the idiot and now yall don’t like to hear the hard FACTS….MORE CRIME UNDER CHASTANET…now come for me!

  2. I hope to God, who ever did this dies like a dog, im sorry to say it but i hope u go to hell for taking this young child’s life, i am so upset by this , this is awful , I really wanna know what worst thing is going to happen next for the Minister of home affairs or the police commissioner, to see what yawll will finally do to stop these psychopath serial killers…when will it end, when,

    • Are u serious! it seems chastnet is the one telling the criminals to take a gun and pull the trigger and kill, why are you so against the prime minister, he cannot control the minds of serial killers, now stop being an ass and pray to God for these criminals to become human beings and love one another that is the only way it will stop!!!!

  3. It seems to me that you think the Prime Minister is the one taking the gun, pulling the trigger, aiming and then killing innocent ppl, stop being an ass, you so against the prime minister, its not his faaul these serial killers as killing, you know how it will stop, by praying to God that these criminals start loving each other and letting vengeance go, thats what will stop crime, pray for them!!!!

    • Y’all being the bigger ass….the politicization of crime started with Allen Chastanet the gorgor. When was SLP La Corbinnaire was pulling the trigger but now is not Chastenet…that is why he have to treat y’all like dogs in y’all own country. Worship y’all gorgor PM. Damn hypocrites

    • Well you should have told your gorgor PM that instead f coming and saying he will make St Lucia safer and saying Kenny couldn’t he should have prayed instead of mocking God. Now is that blight on the country. Hypocrite!

      • Serious issues with our country young innocent person are dying and yet still we allow politic to mandate our behaviour. Lord put a hand on some idiots.

  4. All of you talking politic no prime minister can stop crime if they don’t put maximum penalty on those criminals chastnet or kenny connot do nothing to stop those criminal they need serious prayes

  5. The Boss and Josito Mateo the pm made a bomb with you guys mother and didn’t honor it . Wat boy people destroyed over the death of their love ones and you punks bringing politics in this . Be real men

  6. I heard there was an off duty policemen present and did nothing to arrest the situation. Now providing that is true and he had a gun to protect himself, he should be simple fired. He is not deserving of such responsibility.

  7. U the mother i feel your pain but urll know very well is your nephew that killed your son he was a good boy what was he doin with gun yourll lucians have to stop with those ******** RIP to the 13yr old

  8. its quite obvious that those gun men were not masked or else they would just fled the scene why would they take an innocent youngsters life? ” u cant identify a mask man ” or maybe those figitives were not masked an the youger boy maybe saw their faces hence the reason they killed him, but the question is, those witnesses maybe kno more to the story cuz this is not all

  9. Lady, i would like to extend my deepest sympathy to you, the boy’s father his friends and realities, not forgetting your nephew’s love ones. One can only imagine the pain that has caused to the love ones of these 2 young men; what about his class and school mates? People that is very serious!
    Who are the law makers of this country? Are they asleep? Who told us that they will handle this crime situation if we vote them in? Is it wrong to point fingers on the PM. Or any of these swell headed blokes in there? Stop criticizing people’s comments and opinions. Instead, let’s join forces together, to apply pressure on those responsible for our well being and security in our country! We are no longer safe in Lucia anymore. So stop talking about politics, politics have nothing to do with our safety, and the people must not take the law into their own hands, less we become outlaws and criminals we will be. I am appealing to the PM. And his disciples to move on with the crime plan they were campaigning about, (if they ever had one that is,) or step down!
