Police have arrested two persons in connection with two separate homicides that occurred last weekend.
Danny ‘Cocoy’ Theophane of Conway, Castries, was shot as he walked in the vicinity of the Soufriere bus stop on Carl Crescent Street at about 11:20 p.m. on Friday, July 11.
The 19-year-old ran and collapsed by the St. Lucia Marketing Board where he died.
In the other incident, 30-year-old security guard, Vinton Stephen Clement, also known as Tanny, was fatally shot when two masked men invaded an area called “The Slab” in Faux-A-Chaud, Castries, firing shots randomly around 12:57 a.m. on Saturday, July 12.
