Vieux Fort shooting victim, Miguel Soumere, has been charged with murder, according to law enforcement officials.
Soumere, alias ‘MVP’, had been hospitalised after a gunman shot him in the head last month, resulting in the victim losing vision in one eye, it was reported.
His cousin, Irvin Julian, was charged with the attempt to kill him.
The incident occurred at Bruceville, Vieux Fort.
Law enforcement officials told St Lucia Times that Soumere, who has since been released from hospital, was slapped with the murder charge Thursday.
He is currently in custody.
Soumere is accused in the fatal shooting of Fish Cleaner, Melvin Romanus George, 30, at the Vieux Fort Fisheries Complex on Friday, January 25, 2019.
George was shot in the back of the head by a lone gunman wearing a ‘hoodie’ and died on the spot.
Law enforcement authorities had said that they suspected that the killing of George and the attempted murder of Soumere were linked.
