A 35-year-old man became the island’s latest homicide victim.
Reports are that Tennyson Lionel of Ciceron, Castries sustained gunshot wounds at around 2:20 a.m. this morning near Chateau Blanch in Morne Du Don, Castries.
He reportedly sustained two gunshot wounds.
Lionel celebrated his birthday on Wednesday, July 29, a few hours before he was killed.
He is the 13th homicide victim.
Lionel is no stranger to the news.
He was the victim of a chopping incident last year. Reports are that he was brought to Victoria Hospital bleeding profusely from wounds to his head and arms at about 2:30 am on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
Lionel also made the news earlier that same year, as the victim of a robbery on Jeremie Street on Saturday, January 11, 2014.
In 2012, Lionel was ordered to pay a total of $1,500 for drug charges.
He was arrested in Bexon during a police operation on Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 at about 1:30 a.m. and appeared in court the same day on the charges of possession of a controlled drug (cannabis) and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.
Lionel pleaded guilty on both charges and was fined $750 to be paid by November 15, 2012 on the charge of possession of a controlled drug, and $750 to be paid by February 15, 2013 on the charge of possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.
