Triple homicide in Bruceville, Vieux Fort; female spared

Three men were shot dead in a house in Bruceville Vieux Fort in the wee hours of Saturday morning, St Lucia police have confirmed.

Source say a female who was inside the house at the time was unharmed and is currently assisting police with their investigations.

Inspector Marcellinus Leonce

Inspector Marcellinus Leonce, Head of the Criminal Investigations Department for the South, confirmed that three young men were killed inside the house at approximately one o’clock in the morning.

Two of the victims were identified by relatives at the scene as Norbert Allan, 25, of La Ressource, Dennery and David Raymond also known as Pumpkin.

Verna Evans said she was inside her home when she heard a voice shout “police” at approximately one o’clock followed by flurry of gunshots. She later heard two voices walking away from the area.

“I hear the gun shot. I come to get up. My son who was there tell me, Mummy things like that you mustn’t go out. Then after I hear two people was talking. To tell you the truth, I don’t know who that person was talking,” Evans recounted.

Evans said immediately after the shooting, a young woman whom she identified as the “long-time girlfriend” of the homeowner came to sit outside her gate. The young woman did not speak much, she said.

“She was crying and she asked for somebody. And the brother of the next one they shoot called her,” Evans said.

Prince Prescott said he was at work when he received a call that his son was shot. He identified his son as David Raymond, aka Pumpkin, in his thirties.

“You know already when you young, is gang thing. But they always wanted to kill him, so they kill him. So maybe the person that kill him satisfied already. ” Prescott.

The triple homicide followed a shooting in the same area hours earlier. Inspector Leonce said it’s too early to determine whether the two incidents are connected.

“At around 10pm that very same night there was a shooting in Vieux Fort, however, we cannot say with any degree of certainty that it is connected.”

Police investigations are continuing into this incident.

    • My exact thought…… How inconsiderate of the journalist. Even if she gave you her name there was no need to use it in the report….smdh

    • But yet they want ppl to help in identifying criminals when there’s a crime on the basis of anonymity. Smh.

  2. So Verna Evans is you that going and ggive your name .All the crime that going on you talking .Lady be careful.

  3. There is no mercy of death walking around . These young people are imitating the North American attitudes wanting to live a gangster lifestyle. It sure is doing them good , either in jail or death. So good luck to all u gangsters walking the streets terrorising people.

  8. Bad man don’t live in wooden houses.. you’ll doing people things and is wooden houses you living… more to come

  9. There are those who glorify the murder of these young men. I cringe to think of the level of barbarism that exists among our people. It is so surprising that our country is predominantly Christian yet we dance to the news of murder. Isn’t it the God you worship who commanded that you not kill? A life is a life and it’s wrong to take any life by any means. Murder is wrong whether done by police or civilian. Condemn the revenge killings, condemn the vigilante murders. We don’t need that in St Lucia. Quit judging tbose who die as a result of violent acts. It’s so wrong. As a nation this type of behaviour reflects on all.of us. Smh

    • Very well said Khayti! There seems to be very little respect and regard for human life by some St. Lucians. This is very disconcerting. These murders should be summarily and resoundingly condemned by all. The Blame Game does nothing to help solve crime. One’s heart and soul have to be overly dark to make jokes about the loss of human life especially by unnatural causes. All citizens should be vehemently outraged by these murderous happenings, and do something, no matter how miniscule, to stop this disastrous trend.

  10. The crime situation did not happen over night. It is not the cause of any Government. It is our own fault. Diminished values and morals. No respect for each other. Parents afraid to discipline their children etc. On the other hand if one wants to blame Government, again not an overnight issue. It happened over a period of time.
