A St. Lucian man was gunned down in neighbouring Martinique in the wee hours of Sunday morning (June 22) as he allegedly arrived to defend his sister in a dispute at a fete.

Ray George aka Benzy Man, originally from Mon Repos, St. Lucia, was shot about six times at Route de la Folie, Fort de France around 4 a.m. Sunday. He died on the spot.

The alleged perpetrators, believed be French nationals, were taken into police custody.

Reports are that the 26-year-old father of two sons was called to the scene of a dispute which involved his sister.

“His sister was in a fight with some girls in a dance for a cup of Champagne that fell on her. She called her brother (Ray) for assistance. When he came to the scene two fellas gun-shot him. When we reach he was already dead,” said a source.

Another source said George was shot before he could get off his motorcycle.

The deceased was described as a “very quiet fella”.

“He never had problems according to his friends and family,” the source added.

  4. ONE THING I CAN SAY FOR SURE. ST. LUCIANS HAVE GIVEN ST. LUCIA A VERY BAD NAME AND COMIT A LOT OF SENSELESS CRIMES IN MARTINIQUE. BUT WE MUST REMEMBER MARTINIQUE IS A LIFE LINE TO MANY ST. LUCIANS WHO HAS EARN AND CONTINUE TO MAKE A LIFE FOR THEM SELVES AND THEIR FAMILY. LET US ALL FOCUS ON WHAT WE ARE IN MARTINIQUE TO ACHIEVE. STAY SAFE LUCIANS AND DO NOT FORGET THIS IS NOT YOUR LAND.

  6. If only she had taken her Champagne bath and walk away pretend she's a coward this young man would still be alive today. Instead she call for backup so she was up for a fight,she have herself to blame hope she can live with it. There are times we have to learn to walk away a little Champagne would not melt you.

  7. It's sad .All this talk about Fench people.I am French my father is St.lucian,but you do not blame or condemn an entire country or race all because of Idiots .I am offended by some of these idiotic and ignorant comments.However I am comforted knowing that the entire island of St.Lucia does not share the same sentiments.

    • You are not fully French if your daddy is from St Lucia. You are partly French -- Get this right.

      I do agree with the latter part of your comment. However you must realise that Most Martiniquans do the same thing. When Lucians commit crimes over there they apportion blame to the entire St Lucian community.

      They like to blame others.. Lucians should keep away from Martinique. What are they going over there to do? Leave the French dependency alone and do your stuff at home. Stop allowing people to belch all over you. Keep your dignity intact people. Leave Martinique and its people alone,,,,

      • You cannot tell the individual what they are. If they see the self as being French they are French. I cannot stand people who want to tell people what or who they are.

      • He/She is FRENCH even if his dad was st Lucian fact is he is French, sounds like you feel inferior to the French so you are trying to put them down. am 100% Lucian but this is not about nationality here, so your correction on the persons nationality is not requested .choops

This is so tragic.Someone beinging gunned down over something so minor.I do not know the facts,but I think there may be more to this.Poor sister I can't imagine how she must feel knowing she had a direct hand in her brother losing his life.That will be with her forever,but let us keep them in prayer.

  13. I read all those comments on there and a lot of these comments are throwing stones at what happened over a "glass of champagne" is what infuriated her to call her brother for help. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. If you were in her shoes or any of your relative what would you do? Until it hits home we make all kinds of Assumptions and recommendations but when it's ours we sing a different song. Be Careful what you say for KARMA is a real BITCH and she bites harder than we think.

  15. This crime is very suspicious for the fact it is allege to have happened over a spilled drink. All opinions are equally suspicious because of the lack of evidence.

  16. Sorry to say but French people actually do crime to, if you did not no majority of the Lucians doing crime in La Ba have their french links there.

  17. Omg... St.Lucians needa get their mindset straight & their comments positive it's been a while i've been watching the St.Lucian news and the things which bother me are, the way some ppl think am not St.Lucian but my parents are. Am so sorry to say but some of yall are so ungrateful why would this person ever comment that French people are not killers ... WAITTTT WHATTT??? It's just funny hope one day most of yall will be able to see what i am talking about but thank you for ready..

  18. From the story told it is obvious there's more to this than the champagne falling on his sister because as soon as he reach they gave it to him not even letting him get of the bike so which means they had it for him and used the sister to get him there. The question is what rout he got himself in with those killers.
