UPDATE: Man hospitalised in stable condition following shooting


A 51-year-old man is now at Victoria Hospital following a shooting incident last night (Saturday, July 5) in Fond Le Grand, Castries located behind Courts (between Wilton’s Yard and Leslie Land).

Reports are that about nine shots were fired in the direction of the victim, Michael Gustave of Fond Le Grand.

One of the shots hit him on the right side of his stomach. It is believed that Gustave was an innocent bystander who got caught in the crossfire.

He was admitted to hospital in stable condition. Police received the shooting report at about 7:30 p.m.

This shooting comes after two reports of shootings in the city Friday night: one between 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the other around 11 p.m. Reports are that one person was injured in the earlier incident.

  5. Correct me if i am wrong but every time i pass on that road there seem to be police walking up and down that street. So tell me who fired the wild grains. An instead of the police standing on the side of the road giving people tickets and harassing people about their seat belts, tint, tires and all that in town. why don't they look for the criminals who fired the shots if they say is criminals and stop hiding and firing wild grains.

  11. Mr PM please allow the police to bring back the squad that once rid our country of so many 'bad guys'. To hell with what America has to say, they wipe out criminals on their streets and send young soldiers to kill innocent people where there is oil and natural resources they want to control. We need some calm and security on our streets.

  15. I really don't know what's wrong with these wannabe gangsters in st.lucia. The man was an innocent man just sitting down under a tree and he has to be a victim of these fake gangsters utter foolishness. You cannot go scattering gunshots when there are innocent bystanding in the mix of urll so called enemies. Too many innocent people are suffering at the hands of these stupid idiots and nothing is being done about it. St.lucia on the other hand has no law bcuz murderers and criminals are walking the streets like any other person. I hope that there is some form of justice for this man.

    • and then people will say not to blame the government. They would think twice about committing crime if they were punished severely for doing this type of things. I am not just blaming Kenny but previous governments as well because it would not have been so bad if something was done about it before. You do the crime you served the time, even if throwing away the keys.
