According to reports a man who attempted to rob a Special Police Constable has been shot dead.
About 10 PM Friday three men confronted the plain clothes officer in George V Park (The Gardens) and demanded that he “pass it.” One of the three assailants, Simon Joseph of Balata in Castries, was armed with a knife.
The Special Police Constable drew his weapon and fired, shooting Joseph in the chest.
The two accomplices ran off empty handed.
Simon Joseph was transported to Victoria Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
This comes in the wake of two other shootings on Friday at Grande Riviere, Gros Islet and Rodney Bay.
