The two people, who sustained gunshot wounds after gunmen invaded their Hospital Road, Castries home on Friday July 25, while they slept, have been released from hospital.
The couple – Liana James of Manuel Street, Castries and Andre McVane of Hospital Road – are said to be recuperating.
Two gunmen entered the couple’s room around 12:50a.m Friday last and fired about two shots.
James, a mother of two, was hit in the right breast and arm while her boyfriend sustained a wound to the side of his back. James’ children were not at home at the time of the shooting.
The shooting occurred near a cemetery in the community.
Residents have told St. Lucia News Online that a gang war is currently raging between factions from the cemetery side of Hospital Road and Faux-A-Chaud.
