Po­lice dis­cover ammunition

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Mon­day, April 20, 2015 po­lice con­ducted an op­er­a­tion in Wil­ton’s Yard ,more pop­u­larly known as The Grave­yard area in Cas­tries.

As a re­sult of the op­er­a­tion, po­lice dis­cov­ered 26 rounds of 5.56 ammunition and 3.45 rounds of ammunition. No one was ar­rested as a re­sult of the said op­er­a­tion.

Af­ter a rel­a­tively quiet pe­riod from vi­o­lent crime in Saint Lu­cia, gun vi­o­lence erupted once again in The Grave­yard on March 25, 2015. On that day two men were shot while sit­ting at a bar in the area and had to be hos­pi­tal­ized.

Since then gun vi­o­lence has erupted in the city in and around The Grave­yard claim­ing the lives of at least three per­sons.
