Gino Joseph

Police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and three others injured in Pavee, Castries Saturday morning.

Dead is 26-year-old Gino Joseph of Pavee. Among the injured are two teenagers, ages 14 and 19.

Reports are that the gunman, described as a masked man dressed in all black, fired shots in a bar in Pavee, hitting Joseph and three others while customers played pool.

Just a week ago, a man, identified as 45-year-old Earl Emmanuel, was shot in a house in Pavee. Two other individuals who were in the house escaped unhurt. Emmanuel was pronounced dead at Victoria Hospital. He sustained injuries to his buttock and abdomen.

It is not clear if these two shootings are related.

  1. Ten percent of the population is committing 90 percent of the crime in this country. They are ignorant. Thye are semi-literate. They are uneducated. They are greedy. They are envious.

    Starting with very early childhood education through to adulthood, this country has to double-down and create an education system that continuously develops real human beings, instead of the commonplace predatory monsters that our females keep on popping out of their wombs.

    • The only way to mitigate(you cannot stop crime) crime is to target wayward youth at the early childhood development stage. Unfortunately that is not related to tourism so it wont happen.

      • I would not say 'won't'. That is too strong a word and is defeatist. You are a dead man walking with such an attitude.

        There's always tomorrow. But, that is unless you commit suicide today.

    • Where are you getting your statistics?
