Corporal Peter was gunned down near the Bank of St. Lucia Waterfront branch while providing security service for a nightly deposit on Friday, February 19 at about 9 p.m.

During Wednesday’s funeral procession, members of the police band provided resounding renditions of various tunes suited for the occasion. All uniformed groups were present for the send-off.

    That’s why we need to go at those who have or are suspected to have illegal firearms in every nook and cranny of Dominica.

    My heart goes out to the family as a former police officer working in the RSS. May his soul rest in peace.
    When crimes like this happen the Government should give this CRIMINALS the full blunt of the law.

    Oh how sad to see how our small islands are suffering the negative effects of globalization. May his soul RIP and his family/ friends/ aquaintances find comfort in knowing that he served dutifully and now in a better place. I pray to god that never happens to us in Dominica.
