A young male was in police custody being questioned in connection with the shooting death of Soufriere businessman Ison Francis St John, a senior law enforcement official says.

St John, 38, and his girlfriend operated B’s Bar at Fond St Jacques, Soufriere it was reported.

According to information, masked gunmen entered the establishment opened fire, took cash from a drawer and fled.

St John was shot outside the business place about 1:45 am on Saturday, a law enforcement official, quoting an eyewitness account told St Lucia Times.

A video posted on social media shows a man in a red long sleeved top and what appeared to be khaki trousers lying on his back.

A crowd of onlookers gathered outside the perimeter of the caution tape used by the police to cordon off the area around the crime scene.



  1. This is not news…just Ernest letting the party delegates that he is stronger in his seat while his national reputation among the party faithful grows. He will be a worthy replacement for pip..🤔

    • Trev stop smoking that Fond St. Jacques high-grade. It is clouding your way of thinking. Anyway hope they catch them and make them pay with their lives.

  2. What does Ernest and pip have to do with questioning a suspect for murder …….that strange.

  3. Is there a real law, for killers in our land? Our people are weeping!! Lord put a hand!
