A special police constable has become one of the latest victims of the recent upsurge in crime gripping the country.
Lucan Lesmond, a former Special Services Unit (SSU) officer, died from a gunshot wound to the face Sunday morning at about 5:00 in his apartment in La Toc.
A woman, believed to be his wife, is reportedly assisting the police in their investigations. It is alleged that the weapon used in the shooting is Lesmond’s occupational firearm.
St. Lucia News Online understands that the couple has had a history of domestic violence.
