A 16-year-old student of the George Charles Secondary School is dead and his schoolmate battling for life at Victoria Hospital following a shooting in Maynard Hill, Castries last night.
The dead teen has been identified as Kevin Constantine aka Duck, while the other victim is said to be his best friend, Kyle Samuel, 16.
Reports are that the shooting took place at between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Saturday night.
St. Lucia News Online (SNO) who was the first news team on the scene of the shooting, spoke to relatives and friends of the deceased.
Friends have vowed revenge, saying Constantine was not a troublemaker.
“You see now there? An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth,” said a friend.
“I telling you bold face, enough is enough,” he added.
The men told SNO that the police know who the instigators are but are not doing their job, and are instead targeting men from Maynard Hill.
The men say at least four of their friends have been killed over a period of time and they have never retaliated, but now is the time as an innocent young man described as “helpful” is the latest victim of an ongoing feud.
“We is the law now,” said another. “A man must fall, watch the vibe.”
