Reports are that on Monday, Nov. 5, shortly after 3 a.m., police heard shots being fired in the town of Gros Islet and subsequently intercepted a car with Pierre as its lone occupant.

The firearm with the ammunition was discovered during a search of the vehicle.

Pierre was arrested immediately but he was formally charged on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 6.
