A 76 year old male was shot in the lower abdomen Saturday evening during a robbery, it has been reported.
The victim has been identified as Andrew Joseph, alias Mr. Mow Weng of Andrew’s mini-mart in Mon Repos.
Residents of the area say he is the proprietor of the business place.
Joseph was transported to St Jude Hospital via ambulance about 7.15 pm, according to reports.
Residents of the area say two masked men entered the mini-mart, manhandled the senior citizen and shot him before escaping with cash.
“All they got was coins you know,” a resident told St Lucia Times.
It was reported that Joseph’s wife and another female were at the business place when the bandits struck.
