DEAD: Amos McFarlane

Police have arrested a young male for questioning in relation to a fatal shooting in Vieux Fort on Sunday evening.

The victim in that shooting has been identified as Amos McFarlane, who is believed to be in his mid 20’s.

It is unclear what led to the shooting, as details are still sketchy.

However, McFarlane was reportedly shot about two blocks from the Vieux Fort Roman Catholic Church.

Emergency service officials said they received a call from the police around 11 p.m. Sunday, but when they arrived on the scene, the victim was already dead and the police had started their investigation.

McFarlane was shot multiple times and residents recalled hearing several gun shots before his body was discovered.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) understands that the victim was one of several persons who were initially arrested in the 2014 robbery of a retired British couple on a yacht, in which a 62-year-old male tourist was brutally killed.

A police source said he was taken in for questioning but later released.

We will provide you with more detail as soon as it becomes available.

  3. It is amazing with how much ease we can associate persons to crime after they become a victim or are accused. However, conveniently we remain silent when it is those that we highly favor, whether politically or otherwise. We can say boldly that the young man was one previously arrested for murder yet we are afraid to say that certain people we arrested and even charged with rape. Hypocrites, that's why we will suffer and will make reparations unto the Lord.

      "...who were initially arrested...." "A police source said he was taken in for questioning but later released."
