St. Lucian man shots girlfriend before killing himself in the US

St. Lucia News Online has confirmed that the victims of an attempted murder-suicide incident on Monday, April 15 in West Palm Beach, USA are St. Lucian nationals.

West Palm Beach Police said Vincent Edwards shot Chenel Monrose and then turned the gun on himself shortly after 6 p.m. outside a single-family home in the 900 block of 43rd Street, according to a report in the Palm Beach Post newspaper.

Monrose, who was shot in the head, was taken in critical condition to St. Mary’s Medical Center. She is expected to survive. Edwards died at the scene.

According to the newspaper, a woman, who remained anonymous, said the couple recently had experienced domestic troubles.

“I knew they were having issues, like all couples do. But I didn’t know it was to that extent, where he’d want to take her life,” the woman told The Post.

Police said two young children, believed to belong to one of Monrose’s family members, were present when the shooting took place, but they were not injured.

  6. SNO, it would be best to provide credit for someone else's report. The least you could have done is provide a reference - plagiarism is a crime.

    • YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY A TROUBLEMAKER. The byline of the story says Palm Beach Post/SNO reports and the information in the story was attributed throughout to the Palm Beach Post. I can volunteer to buy you some good spectacles.

    • These comments show how disputes like these propagate and culminate into acts of violence. You guys just read the report yet there is still senseless disputing over a citation. Tsk tsk. Behave you'll self-eh.
