Shawn Joseph, the man who was fatally shot in Bagatelle, Castries on Friday, May 24, was allegedly a gunman ‘back in the days’ but he had changed his life for the better, reliable police sources have informed St. Lucia News Online.

Joseph, who is originally from Conway, Castries but resided at Ti Rocher, was part of a Conway crew back in the 1990s, according to our sources.

His nickname was ‘Black Cat’ or ‘Cat’.

“He used to be a bad boy in the 90’s then he changed his life around, cut his locks, but for the last 10 years I personally haven’t heard about him being involved in any criminal activity,” one of the law enforcement sources said, adding that Joseph settled down and started a family.

“He was operating the canteen at the Marigot Secondary School and a bar at Ti Rocher along with his wife,” the source added.

According to reports, Joseph was driving his motorcycle through Bagatelle, around 3 p.m., when multiple shots were fired at him by unknown person/s.

A resident told St. Lucia News Online that Joseph “ditched his bike” and ran into a yard where he collapsed. He was transported by ambulance to Victoria Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

He was believed to be in his 40s.

St. Lucia News Online understands that back in the 1990’s Joseph was a suspect in the fatal shooting of a female, but he was released due to lack of evidence. It is alleged that the fatal shooting may have been accidental.

    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

    The father says: I desire you to be free and not punish yourself unjustly. If I say you are to be free, then no one can speak higher than my authority. What looks one way may indeed be something else entirely, let me sort out what is covered in fog and confusion. Let me love on you and give you infilling in those voids for you are not meant to be empty. I have stored up your tears and I am wiping away what is not my best. You will find in the coming months reconciliation in several key and important areas surrounding where you were stuck. People have not always understood what you have gone through and many believe you should have done something entirely different than the direction that you went in. I am settling your accounts with others and removing what has been held against you.
    What was pushing you back will now push you forward. The ties of the past are broken, embrace it for this is my desire over your days. The eighth day is the new beginning. I desire that you embrace this with everything that is within you. I am coming to you this hour to show you areas that you have not forgiven yourself. It is time to let go of what you feel you deserve to hang on to. It does not matter what the opinions are of others. I have forgiven you and so you must also forgive yourself. When you refuse to pardon yourself, you are placing yourself above me. You are stating in this one act that Jesus paid for your sins was not enough. Would you like to argue this point with me further? I do not find pleasure in being reminded for what I threw as far as the east is from the west.

    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
