Police said they are investigating the death of 31-year-old Mandy Louisy of Chassin, Babonneau who was reportedly shot during a struggle with one of the law men last week.

According to a police press release submitted on Tuesday, August 13,  the incident took place on Friday, August 9, 2013 at about 12:30 pm at Chassin, Babonneau when officers attached to the Babonneau Police Station were on patrol in the area and encountered Louisy.

“Louisy who appeared suspicious at the time was approached by officers who were in plain clothes. The officers identified themselves to the suspect and attempted to carry out a search on his person,” the release stated.

“A struggle ensued between the officer and the suspect when a single gunshot was fired, hitting Louisy in the process. Consequently he was transported to Victoria Hospital where he was treated and admitted. Louisy later succumbed to his injury whilst admitted at the said hospital,” the press release added.

A post mortem examination conducted on Louisy on Monday, August 12, 2013 revealed he died of hemorrhagic shock “secondary to a single gunshot wound to the upper part of his body”.

“The matter is currently under investigations,” the police release said.

According to other news reports, family members say Louisy, known as a recluse, suffered from a mental disorder but was not prone to violence. Relatives say the policeman responsible for shooting Louisy should be charged for murder.

  1. Oh, someone is always a good person, not a troublemaker, etc, etc, AFTER they have been killed. How about BEFORE they were killed?

  2. mandy was a good friend and after knowing him for so long i can say that he was someone who kept to himself and not a troublesome individual i am even shocked by this horrible news even if i am overseas. i knew of his mental illness even before i left st lucia but even then he was not a threat to anyone. my condolences go out to the family especially his mom, i hope that this officer gets to go to prison for murder i will miss u mandy. instead of doing those horrible things to those innocent people go out and get the criminals who murder people and do wrong.

  3. The police should be charged and thrown into jail. Am sure the truth was not complete in this release statement as usual. Poor man, the real criminals most of them are in the police force or affiliated.

  4. Ok With all being said, We don't we all pledge to buy at leaset one a few teasers for the police, we should be responsible citizens too. If we take the first step it can help change things, I would like to pledge $50:00ec towards that proposed project. Also St.Lucians overseas start looking at the prices and do your part we can change the way things are if you are really concern about your country. God Bless our Island

  7. What has Petro Caribe got to do with the police commissioner not being allowed to travel to the USA?1:Who signed the agreement?2:It was Kenny Anthony.3:Shouldn't he and his ministers be the ones to refuse entry to America?4:Has the officer who shot the young man been suspended?5:and is the investigation being done by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

  8. i think it's about time the police force stop covering for these trigger happy police officers, they too disgusting some of them. they like to cover up for these fools that's why the public most times don't want to co-operate with them. They should give the name of the officer and then you would hear the amount of bad comments said about him. the poor boy did not deserve what he got, i don't support violence to mentally challenged people. The truth will never be told, the government need to start firing y'all or sending you'll butt to jail when y'all kill innocent people. the same way they kill lester their fellow cop and now they have the poor boy on death row for lester death. this police force is corrupt from the top down to the bottom, the force needs to be purged!! RIP Mandy Louisy, only jah see and know everything. the truth will be revealed soon enough you can bet your soul on it. Sincere condolences go out the family of mandy louisy, may the soul of the faithfully departed thru the mercy of god rest in peace. AMEN

U can run but u cannot hide.

    • ARE YOU SERIOUS? you should become a police officer and use a taser when you are called to an incident where someone has a gun or knife.
