One of the men who were shot by the police in Gros Islet town on Friday, May 29 is scheduled to appear in a Castries Magistrate’s Court this morning, June 1.

Denver Melville, 29, of Marisule, Gros-Islet was charged with possession of a firearm, police officials have told St. Lucia News Online.

Meville sustained a gunshot wound to his left calf and was previously listed as being in stable condition following a shooting incident near a bar in the northern town which left four other people nursing gunshot wounds.

The other man was shot in the stomach and is still hospitalised. Police said he will be charged pending his release from hospital. His name cannot be disclosed until he is formally charged.

Police reported that on Friday, May 29, 2015 at about 2:05 a.m., officers attached to the Gros Islet Police Station responded to reports of a shooting incident in which three individuals and two “suspects” sustained gunshot wounds on Dauphin Street, Gros Islet.

Seventeen-year-old Ricky Maynard a.k.a “Bug” of Gros Islet sustained a gunshot wound to the left shoulder and is listed as being in critical condition at the Victoria Hospital.

Twenty-seven-year-old Lyle Auguste of Gros-Islet sustained a gunshot wound to the right side of his waist and 19-year-old Javene Cools a.k.a “Angus” of Massade, Gros Islet sustained a gunshot wound to his left thigh. Both are listed as being in stable condition at the Victoria Hospital.

Police said two “suspects”, including Melville, sustained gunshot wounds when confronted by the police. The other man was listed as being in critical condition at the Victoria Hospital. It is not clear if his condition has improved.

The police said one .38 revolver was discovered on the scene.

  7. Firstly, it should not be surprising to St.Luciana that names of suspects are withheld by the media until charges are preferred.

    Secondly, this incident happened in plain view of many people, right in the centre of Gros Islet town.

    Thirdly, how daring must these guys get before society decides to have one voice on the matter? Surely, they hold no regard for the lives of all the other persons in the area. Shooting from motorcycle????? Wow!!!

    The police officers put themselves on the line...again.

    IMPACS or not.... They did what that swore to do.. Thank God they didn't say screw that and leave their hands in their pockets.

    God help our nation..

  26. The 3 individuals who got shot their names are displayed and I didn't hear of them being charged so why is Saint Lucia News Online is being so bias in telling us lucians the other guy who got shot with Denver his name can't be displayed because he is not charged but y'all just put up names of 3 individuals who are not charged SMFH!!!! ARE THEY PAYING YOU TO LIE........

    • The three individuals are NOT suspects.

    • Jack... they said denver is the one thats being charged so far and the other will be charged after his being released from the f.. hospital.....So shut ur mot... if you cant read.....as...

    • Is that difficult for you to deduce John Doe?
      Their names can be and are mentioned because they will NOT be charged. Melville as well as his partner will have to face the full arm of the law for opening fire in a crowd and injuring the three individuals mentioned
