Police have charged a man in connection with the homicide of Santo Leo Paul in Marchand, Castries almost two weeks ago.
Shevaughn Ramsey, 24, of Marchand was charged on Sept. 5, 2013, police said.
He appeared in court on Sept. 6 where he was ordered remanded at Bordelais Correctional Facility until the next court date on Nov. 8, 2013, police said.
Paul, 19, was shot by a gunman at his home on the George Charles Marchand Boulevard at about 1:20 am on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013.
An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online that Paul was with his girlfriend in a “shack” when he was shot.
“After he got shot he ran and fell in front someone’s house in the gutter,” the eyewitness added.
A police press release corroborated the eyewitness account: “Information indicates that a male individual entered the dwelling house of Santo Leo Paul and fired shots in his direction hitting him on the upper part of his body.”
According to residents, Paul’s life was threatened following a dispute with at least two persons in the community.
Reports are that Paul is the third male to have died tragically in his family.
