UPDATE: Dominican shot dead in Guadeloupe

A Dominican was shot and killed in Gaudeloupe, media in the French island is reporting.

According to the French newspaper France-Antilles, police have identified the man as 55-year-old Raphael Bellot and DNO was reliably informed he is from a village in the northern part of Dominica.

The man’s body was discovered on the roadside by a motorist about midnight on Thursday bathed in blood in the Grand Bois area of Gosier.

The police have confirmed he died from bullet wounds. The police also reported the man had wounds on his arms and abdomen.

Residents in the area reportedly told police they heard the sound of gunshots and a vehicle speeding off just before the body was found.

No one has been arrested and investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile police in the French island up to Sunday have not identified a man who was shot and killed on Wednesday and who many believe is a Dominican.

According to France-Antilles the man was killed on Wednesday night in Capesterre-Belle-Eau. The police report that no proof of identity was found on the man and the tenant of the apartment he was living in didn’t know much either.

Although many people are reporting the victim is from Dominica, the police have not confirm this and has designated him as ‘X.’

An autopsy is to be carried out on the dead man on Monday.

    why doesnt the french like dominicans? ask the guys and gals who go to the people country and steal their stuff and deal drugs its been happening for decades, and they will never like us until those thugs stop their criminal activities.

      nowadays so many dominicains are living in Gwada and are integrated in the social life without you can see ant difference between gwada or them. Manager of my bank is a youg lady with dominicans parents. So why are we staying on that thinking of racism coming from another century. Today Dominica and gwada have to put themselves together to struggle aginst deviances and to give our younth a common future. Never forget that if gwada has a high developpement comparing to his neighboring island, it is due to its belonging to french republic, but their is not local power except for some matters. I am from gwada and I love dominica and my dominicans people who are often with me in gwada or in dca

    not all guadeloupe people are bad and racist there are alot of good people there that would help you more than alot of of dominicans and the time they were beating dominicans in guadeloupe was the time when dominicans were doing alot of crimes there killing rapeing and stealing and dont forget the drugs thats what they doing so when you people say bad things about other people check your selfs first.

    DNO: “Meanwhile police in the French island up to Sunday have not identify…” (Meanwhile police in the French island up to Sunday, have not identified… is correct) Are there two unrelated stories reported in the same column, if so, why can’t it be made clear so people don’t get confused? :mrgreen:

    What can i say? you live by it, you die by it, but atleast they should not kill him like that because be as it may, Bellot was a nice fella, he chose to live his live by drugs and trickery, so it is, but he should not have had to die like dat… so sorry for ma nelly and the rest of the family, his mother must be bawling…. alas, when we talking to our children and they not hearing, alas papa god.

For those who did not know you, will never know of the other side of you which I knew, so loving. RIP my dear. Aunty \nelly and all, hold strong, God is in control.

    d man was in drug business for years and years so he should have known that this would one day happen to him and he wasnt found 2 days after he was shot they found him early in the morning next to the highway same thing happned to his son who got shot in a drive by. sorry everyone but i only feel sorry for his family that are in pain right now but not him. this is his owne fault for thinking that being involved in illegal activities would take him far and make his life better now he only made his family suffer from the evil choice he made. no matter what situation you are in, selling drugs and making other people suffer is no way or excuse to make your self prosper.

    June 18, 2012

    The name Guadeloupe only bring back bad memories. I hated this place and never quite understand why Dominicans would go there. I guess this feeling started when I was very young and my oldest brother went there to find work.Not sure how every started but there was some sort of riot and the french police would chace, capture and beat Dominicans so badly, then ship them back home like they were animals. Well my brother was one of those beaten and deported back to Dominica, he did nothing to be beaten like that. I wish my peope would never go there, most of the french people treat us like second class citizens, But again I understand the employment situation in Dominica for young people, most trying to find a way out.

      This is true, Guadaloupe people are racist and prejudiced and the black ones think they’re white…

      • June 18, 2012

        The Haitians in Guadeloupe are more racist towards Dominicans than the Guadeloupe French people

        Whenever a Dominican male/woman get employed in Guadeloupe, who are the ones causing them to loose their jobs in Guadeloupe, Haitians, they will go back to the employer and offer to do the work for less money, i had the experience working with a few of them in Guadeloupe, so racism towards Dominicans in Guadeloupe my friends have to do with them Haitians

    Life is precious and we should do our utmost to preserve life from conception to natural death. This includes our very own God-given precious and allotted earthly life.
    It is too bad and sad that he was murdered. This is a life lost and gone forever. First of all what type of life did he live in Guadeloupe and who did he associate with? Was he involved with bad company and any shady actions? This is not yet revealed.
    We must think prior to commenting. ‘Some people’ are always blaming the government for not creating jobs. This is a worldwide situation. Everyone knows the saying, “God help those who help themselves”. I will add, legally.
    Do you not realize that business owners are the ones to create jobs? If there is a market for new jobs, then they will be created. At this time how many jobs and what types of jobs can be created in Dominica? Furthermore, it takes a lot of thinking, discussing, planning and money to create new jobs.
    Specifically in this era, migrating is not always the answer. In addition some people migrate to other countries or visit other countries and while there they do not live a law-abiding life. Those countries are also experiencing unemployment. Times have changed and are not what it was in years gone by. They may migrate to seek job opportunities only to find out that they are unable to obtain same. Should they blame the government of that country and their government in their land of birth for their unemployment status?
    Then, there are those who depend on their own understanding and strength and never seeking the help of God as some do not worship Him. What do they expect?
    Dominica has a lot of waste land (I hope) and people can till the land and grow all sorts of vegetables for sale and earn a good, clean, progressive and successful living while they are still young, healthy and capable of working. Progress and success result from hard work and sweat.
    The problem is ‘some of them’ are not ambitious and do not want to work hard. They prefer the easy life and getting quick money. This could result in loss of their life.

        @ B.E.B.

        Wow! He was residing in Guadeloupe for 25 years? I wonder how he lived, what he did and what happened that he was murdered.
        DNO should try to get the full story. Too often when we read such stories we may have a wrong notion of the cause and even blame the victim. It pays to know the truth.

      Guadeloupe’s Population – 400,000

      Dominica’s Population – Under 70,000

      A difference of 330,000

      How can we use crime in Guadeloupe to justify crime in Dominica?

      Why do we have to make our self sound so dumb to defend the FACT that we have a selective police force and judicial system, the FACT that there is alot of political interference in the police force and judicial system, the FACT that many “at the top” have NO MORAL AUTHORITY to complain about crime.

      Why are we trying to run away from that the moment crime takes place in another country?

      Did the PM not make the no law, including the constitution statement?

      Did the Officials in Guadeloupe make a statement like this too? lol

      Oh boy..Happy Father’s Day…I’m off to a brunch!

        Some of us sound like useless stuck records. PM dis! PM dat! No matter how often you say something does not make it true. Instead tell the criminals what they are doing is wrong and they should find another lifestyle.

        You are encourageing the carnage by finding excuse for the culprits and shifting blame to somebody else. Stop it!

        When you do wrong and go before God, tell him that the PM did it so you did it too and see where it takes you.
