Homicide victims: Oran Charles aka Wong (let) who was killed in Ciceron and funeral home workers remove the body of one Toni of Castries who was killed off Chaussee Road.

Two persons were fatally shot in separate incidents in Castries between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning – marking St. Lucia’s first homicides for 2015.

A homeless man, Anthony Harris, also known as Tony, died off Chaussee Road, behind the Courts building, near Wilton’s Yard, also known as Graveyard. The incident occurred at around 11: 20 p.m. Saturday, April 4.

It is believed that Tony was caught in a crossfire.

Another male, identified as Brent Frederick, believed to be in his teens, sustained a gunshot wound in the mouth and was hospitalised in stable condition.

In the second incident, a man, identified by a family member as Oran Charles, aka Wong, of Monkey Town, Ciceron, was shot multiple times in Monkey Town around 2 a.m. Sunday. It is believed that the shooting was gang-related.

Charles, who was in his mid to late 20s, celebrated his birthday recently, on April 1, a relative told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).

Of note, St. Lucia, unofficially, recorded no homicides in January, February and March 2015.

More details later.

    • I dont pray but i can assure you i dont have hate in my heart no do i engage in any gang or violent activities...prayer doesnt solve anything people being kinder to each other and extending a helping hand is what going to save the country, but sadly this will never happen becuz st lucia is no longer able to be saved as long as people like the ones committing these crimes are alive.

Arent you afraid of where you living if you really live Rose Hill at all or you just passing through. I bet you the "Danny Cat" you talking about knows you mentioning his name right now and knows you soooo well. Anyways have a nice day. 🙂

  7. Time we end this lawlessness with discipline and without mercy.

    Ezekiel 25:17 say it best...

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."
