Trinidad national shot and killed in St Lucia

CASTRIES, St. Lucia, Friday November 30, 2012 – Police say four people are assisting their investigations into the shooting death of 27-year-old Trinidadian, Arthur Jones.

Police said that Jones was shot and killed on Thursday soon after leaving the home of a female friend at Bois D’Orange, north of here. He was apparently ambushed and shot several times.

He slumped to the side of the Bois d’orange road where his body was discovered later in the morning.

Police said that the murder may have been linked to a shooting earlier this year that left one person dead and another seriously wounded.

So far, 40 people have been murdered here this year. (CMC) Click here to receive free news bulletins via email from Caribbean360. (View sample)
