Two more dead! More gun violence!

Gun violence in St Lucia has surged in the last two weeks.

As of Friday St Lucia has already recorded 11 murders for the year, two of which are police killings.

We received news late yesterday that an elderly woman was found in her Arundel Hill home already dead. Police are still on the scene trying to ascertain what happened but the woman is said to have had an incision in her torso and her home was ransacked. Eighty-seven-year-old Agatha Bryant was said to have been a quiet woman who lived alone.

The STAR further received news that Friday evening Denroy Joseph was shot and killed while walking up Lastic Hill in Castries. Joseph is said to reside in Wilton’s Yard but is originally from Basse Joseph area.

Police also received reports yesterday morning of shots fired in the Grass Street area but no one was hurt.

Crime in St Lucia has been on the rise for several years and last year St Lucia reached a record 48 murders. Police believe the latest shootings are linked to gang violence. The STAR will give more information on the crime situation as news comes to hand. We will also take an in depth look next week at the current situation in our Saturday issue.
