A baker was shot yesterday (Tuesday, Sept. 12) during a robbery in Beausejour, Gros Islet, according to reliable sources.
The incident occurred about 1:30 p.m. at a grocery shop and bakery.
Reports are that three masked gunmen came into the business establishment and demanded cash from the female cashier.
During the robbery, a baker, who is said to be in his 20’s, was shot in the lower back.
The baker and the cashier were the only ones in the shop at the time.
The gunmen escaped with “not much” cash, according to a source.
The baker was treated at hospital and sent home.
“The bullet is still logged there (in his lower back) but [he] was sent home and was asked to return to see the surgeon in the morning,” a source told St. Lucia News Online.
Police are investigating.
