Police in the French island of Guadeloupe have made no arrests in the shooting death of a Dominican last Thursday.
The dead man has been identified as James Lazare, also known as KashaKou, from Scotts Head.
A source close to the matter told Dominica News Online that Lazare was shot by two men in what appeared to be a robbery attempt outside his home in Vieux-Bourg Abymes.
Reports indicate the two men are probably from the neighbouring community of La Croix.
The source told DNO that Lazare was found by his wife after hearing a loud explosion outside their home. It is reported that it took a long time for the ambulance to arrive on the scene and by the time it did, Lazare was already dead.
The source said Lazare was not supposed to be in Guadeloupe since a French website, detailing police action, revealed that he had been deported to Dominica last year.
Lazare’s body is still awaiting an autopsy and according to the source efforts are being made to bring it to Dominica for burial.
