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.”

  1. If your friends vow revenge then you were a little gangster and it means they know who did it. Well the Maynard Hill community is up for a rude awakening,may God put a hand.

  2. Start treating the young criminals like the big men they are and letting them do hard time. there is a new breed of evil in our world today where there is no regard for human life. you do the crime - do the time!

  5. All this violence is unhealthy for our society.It is sad that an innocent life was taken. We need the family, church and schools to take their socialization roles seriously. We need to go back to the old times where "A community raised a child".

  6. The guns and drugs are entering through the private boats and planes.The police know exactly how they get in.The big boys are the ones bringing the guns and drugs to the Island and, they know the lazy, greedy people who will sell the drugs for them and also provide them the guns, cause they want to live the fast life.

  8. Where are the guns coming from? As I said before, we do not manufacture guns or cocaine, therefore, we must work harder to stop them from entering the Island. The Government must give more resources to the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and to the 'social cause'. Violence will affect Tourism directly or indirectly...and what have you left?
