Two males were shot in separate incidents Friday night in Gros Islet and La Clery, while five individuals were injured in a vehicle collision in the North of the Island, emergency and law enforcement officials say.
According to the officials, about 10,40 pm a man believed to be in his twenties sustained a bullet wound to the leg when a masked assailant opened fire at him at Mornier, Gros Islet.
The victim was transported to hospital via ambulance.
In another and apparently unrelated incident, a 42-year old male was shot in the leg in La Clery.
Emergency officials told St Lucia Times that they received a report about the shooting about 11:50 pm and transported the victim to hospital.
They disclosed that at the time, he was in stable condition.
The emergency officials also reported responding to an accident at the Bonne Terre junction and transporting five people to hospital about 10:41 pm.
The head on collision involved a Toyota Mark 2 and a Honda vehicle, they said.
