(SNO) – Police are investigating two shooting incidents that left two persons injured in Castries last evening and this morning.

The victims have been identified as Albert Antoine and Elford St. Luce.

Antoine sustained a gunshot wound to his leg around 9 p.m. at Odlum City, Castries on Tuesday, May 29. He was transported via ambulance to Victoria Hospital in stable condition. The circumstances surrounding the shooting were not immediately available.

St. Luce, a 44-year-old food shop owner, sustained a gunshot wound to his face on St. Louis Street, Castries, around 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 30.

He was transported via ambulance to Victoria Hospital in stable condition.

“The injury did not appear to be life-threatening. He was able to walk and taken to hospital for treatment,” the source added.

“It’s the first (food) hut at the back of the Castries City Council building,” the source, pointing out the location where the incident occurred.

Robbery is suspected to be the motive for the shooting, the source said.

These shootings occur as police are still investigating last Tuesday afternoon’s shooting on Peynier Street, Castries in which at least five persons, including a child, sustained gunshot injuries. One man, believed to be the shooter, was killed by law enforcement in the incident.

    • these people have forgotten about god such a long time ago thats what is happening its sad but its true. you cant tell me so damn early in the morning you have a gun shooting people already and most times is innocent people that get hurt and when some people call back for Operation Restore Confidence there always have a set of them that for the criminals hiding them. i believe if you are a criminal you should be treated as one and there should be no space for such type of people among law abiding citizens.

      • So where is their space then. Logics and Law are separate, what is right is not always what is legal.

        • you sound like a smart girl, you should figure it out where their space is, also what is right may not be legal but it was working though and everyone could say that the criminals were calm as a dove during that time.

      • This is why its happening in the UK too.. be they from Muslim families or Christian...they have thrown God out and the enemy is taken over...or has taken over.
        It's only when we become a God fearing nation again great good will come out of it.
        We need sincere prayer it's not religion...sincere open transparent prayer to God for good. Blessings all.
