Vieux Fort bracing for reprisal killings

Vieux Fort is bracing for more reprisal killings, following this morning’s shooting death of two men at Bruceville.

Trent Travis Eugene,known as Jupin of Banse Laborie and Clint Felix AKA Black Boy of Micoud were gunned down in the community, their bodies being discovered in Faith Park shortly after midnight.

One of the victims of the double homicide was found with a gunshot wound to the head, while the other had been shot in the chest.

Residents nearby had earlier reported hearing shots being fired.

The two deaths this morning have been linked to an ongoing gangland feud.

Two men were also shot and killed last month by two masked men on foot.

The victims were identified as Junior Gilbert and Miguel Theodore, both believed to be in their late twenties.

There was reported to be a strong police presence at the funeral of one of the two men recently, amid fears of an outbreak of gun violence at the event.

According to reports, Police have identified suspects and collected evidence in the killings  of Gilbert and Theodore but are hampered in their investigations by a non-functioning forensic laboratory.

There are concerns that the violence will escalate with the suspects roaming free and innocent civilians may be hurt.
