GIS – Acting Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre said recently that those involved in the recent Castries murders need to be aware their actions are senseless.
“What sense does it make to shoot and kill people who you grew up with, went to school with, and played games with?” the Castries East MP said.
Minister Pierre said it was important for those using the guns against their neighbors to stop the killing and allow the country to return to the state of peace enjoyed during the first three months of 2015.
A similar message came from Health Minister Alvina Reynolds after doctors, nurses and other health workers at the Castries Health Centre were traumatized by the three fatal shootings in close proximity to their workplace on Chaussee Road.
The minister said those involved in the killings “do not understand the implications of their actions on health workers, who are repeatedly forced to face such trauma.”
Minister Reynolds’ comments came after patients and staff at the Castries Health Centre were forced, three times in as many days, to lock the doors and take protective action after hearing gunshots.
