Police are investigating the shooting of a man in Bagatelle, Castries on Friday afternoon (May 24).

Reports are that the victim, who is originally from Conway but residing at Ti Rocher, Castries, was driving his motorcycle through the community, around 3 p.m., when shots were fired at him.

A resident, speaking on condition of anonymity, told St. Lucia News Online that the man “ditched his bike” after he was “peppered” with bullets.

“He got shot on the [main] road but ran and fell in a yard, in the area where you have a lot of banana trees,” the witness said. “He dropped a good few yards from where he was shot. His bike is still by the road.”


The resident added that an ambulance picked up the injured man.

“He had a pulse but I hear he is dead,” the witness said.

However, St. Lucia News Online has not been able to verify the victim’s current medical status.

Police have since cordoned off the area with yellow tape, picking up spent shells and trying to get information from residents, according to one witness.

The Marchand Police Station responded to the report at about 3:05 p.m.

    • Still Ballin & Alive whilst doing a 9-5

      Wow
      That’s a lot of info right there. Whoever you are, I hope you’re safe because these idiots are brazen enough to come after you. Hopefully you’re not in Slu. It’s time this madness stops. Before the smallest disputes, everyone wants to kill someone. People even travel overseas and brag of plans to kill people in St Lucia. Is it worth it? Don’t any of these people want a decent life with their women and kids? Hospital, cemetery or jail. Unfortunately they will have no choice. It’s one or other. Sad to see St Lucia in this mess.

      • You Lucian’s get soooooo jealous. I am not from Lucia But I know this marlon guy and he is in fact a very loving and caring person. Marlon is completely business minded. He came from the ghetto and is moving forward in life... something that you petty people posting this nonsense fuckery should think of doing. His woman is well educated and smart, something your woman most definitely is not! You would never be able to get a woman like her. All you’s who talking and lying just to feel big and important. Let me ask you.....how can he send someone to burn the hospital and also kill Larry when it was marlon in that hospital recovering from a motorcycle accident Larry was the one who help him after the fire.... you people will pay for the fact you chat too much. Where I live, ppl do NOT throw children into childish games. You can be persecuted in my country for doing so. Just in case you uneducated people don’t know what persecuted means. It means arrested and Charged and sentenced to jail for doing so. You so quick to hide behind fake names and accounts threatening innocent people, for what? My hood would eat you alivel. The person whoever you are I truly hope you know what your saying about his child, any child for that matter. You wouldn’t last a week in Englewood and that’s facts
        Smh fake wannabe texting tough guys. Hey Marlon next time you stay at the Royalton take me, I need that good life.

    • One thing I can be clear about is that i hate violence, but its clear to see people are speaking out of jealously, hate and lack of knowledge for this guy. I've been watching a lot happening in St.Lucia, and no other names seem to come up. This reminds of situations I've come across while foreign. In North America where young men seem to be doing well for themselves there far too many of those who hate and spread false tales. the police obviously don't help either when they want society fall apart to their mercy with what they provide. its a shame. Hold strong whoever you are Marlon, anyone with intelligence and education can see jealously shit going on. No facts.

  3. Heyyyyyy that's what Kenny could not do, now Chastanet is doing it.. Chastanet apologize to the intelligent St Lucians. Not the 43% who will defend you now. St Lucians should understand that they must not defend politicians, they Made promises then they have to stand by it. Chastanet must apologize to us for not keeping his promise.
