Vinton “Tanny” Clement.

Arrests have not been made in relation to two separate homicides which occurred over the weekend and appeals are being made for anyone with information to come forward to assist with investigations.

The Major Crimes Unit of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has said it is probing the shooting deaths of 19-year-old Danny “Cocoyo” of Conway Castries who was killed on July 11 on Crescent Street, Castries at about 11:20 p.m.  and Vinton “Tanny” Clement of Faud-A-Chaud who was shot at about 12:50 a.m. on Saturday, July 12, 2014 in his community.

With regard to Theophane’s shooting, police said that officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department responded to a report of the gunfire in the said area and upon arrival received information that the 19-year-old had received gunshots wounds. He was transported to Victoria Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said that Clement, on the other hand, was shot in the “slums.”

“Information indicate that 30-year-old Vinton “Tanny” Clement of Faux A Chaud, Castries was seated near the “Slums” area in Faux A Chaud with a group of persons when masked men walked up to them and fired several shots in their direction. As a result, Clement sustained gunshot wounds. He was transported to Victoria Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival,” police said in a press release.

Post mortem examinations are due to be done tomorrow July 15, 2014.

    • If you don't want to report it, write the names of the culprits and what you saw on paper and mail it to the Police, the newspapers and tv, without a return address. That way, your name isn't involved, but the Police will have something to start with. We don't want crime like what has been happening to continue. The Police can't be everywhere or see everything. They need CITIZENS to step up to play a role also.

  1. Yes Chief Crook I did saw what went on as much as I want to assist but I am not gonna put my live or any one else is own at risk, hope people understand this but its so unfair thinking back at this day if this kid didn't run while he got shot they would have been a whole lot people that would have gotten shot as well. the police where given an assignment to be carried out that night at the richard frederick building they were like 4 of them and they just kept on standing the very same place I'm not trying to get anyone in to trouble but as far as I can see the police need to be aware and vigilant of they surrounding cause if it wasn't for the public assistance the police would never know there was a crime committed
