One was injured during an attempted robbery on HK Grocery Store in La Bayee, Castries on Thursday evening.
Calixte Edward, a tenant of the same property, was shot in the abdomen at about about 7:45.p.m., when masked gunmen stormed the grocery store.
A source told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that Edward heard a noise and decided to check out what was happening and in doing so he was shot by the gunmen.
The source said Edward, who is in his early 60’s, was rushed to the hospital for treatment and is now in a stable condition.
SNO understands that five men were involved in the attempted robbery. Three of them entered the premises and demanded cash, while the others waited outside. The bandits did not have a vehicle.
A call was made to the police who responded promptly and was able to capture all five bandits.
The men are currently assisting police with the investigations.
