UPDATE: Man killed in Portsmouth shooting

Augustine
Anderson Augustine

Dominica has recorded its first homicide for 2013.

The police report that Anderson Dowlin Augustine, of Savanne Paille,  was shot multiple times by an unknown assailant about 9:15 on Saturday night as he drove his bicycle on the Michael Douglas Boulevard close to the Indian River Bridge in Portsmouth.

Police PRO, Inspector John Carbon, said after the shooting the victim was transported to the Reginald Fitzroy Armour Hospital where he was treated and while being transferred to the Princess Magaret Hospital via the ambulance, he succumbed to his injuries and was returned to the Reginald Fitzroy Armour Hospital.

There, a medical doctor pronounced him officially dead.

The body was then transported to the North Eastern Funeral parlor pending a post mortem examination.

A coroners’ inquest will be convened, Inspector Carbon said.

The police are appealing for the public’s assistance in this latest killing.

Anyone with information of the shooting and any other crime are asked to call 1800- Tips or 1800-Hint.

    Did this young man buried already

    I was visiting family when I heard the news the following day, very sad :( . My condolences to the young mans family. I think Dominica is changing alot, compared to my previous visits I feel the lifestyle of the people are changing and not all for the better. I had to escort my father to the Portsmouth hospital for a check-up only to be informed there was no doctors available 8-O so a new appointment had to be rescheduled. This is not good enough, we have a first class Medical University in the same area which is lacking in doctors at the nearest hospital.

    I’m saddened by this incident more for the family and the town of Portsmouth. However I cannot express sympathy for the victim. He had it coming. A life of drugs, crime and violence always ends this way. Many times I saw him standing near the St.John’s school or in close proximity to the PSS, peddling drugs to young users. I won’t miss him and Portsmouth is a better place without him. :-|

    ok…its not a poor reality so much as a mentality.. you all have a poor man mentality…!!. Can’t blame the government nor a country for me……. grown men with all sense nd thought in their head… decision making men!!!… Germany still lead the word in violence nd narcotic trading/distribution….extacy/cocaine powder are like vitamins in all the greater countries in the world….economy is booming in germany/russia… nd so is drugs…. as for the caribbean… Dominica is not even in the top five of grug activities regional when it comes to real Bosses nd hustling… we only seem to get caught the most!!!… St.lucia itself.. St. vincent.. st. maarteen.. jamaica.. the french states… st. croix etc etc… all trump dca when it comes to heavy hitters in drugs……. pay attention to the amount of solicitation of young women Nd MEN!!! by all characters of so called MEN in the country… that is the issue… nd again that’s not the country raising your lil boy to go in that business.. buh you not minding your business to the rise of that same lil boy or girl…. we know about that business more than the drug business but a mother will see her 16 yr old come home on a fancy car nd think its ok… then say the drug men is a problem… buh let a doctor./lawyer who ever have their children…. also more women now don’t look for good men but for the best man… nd best will always be an opinion not quality.. just standard not one to live up to!!… look at your grandma she got a good man… who had to come good nd get better nd right now they still perfect together.. not apart but what they made was good..!!!… give your children a good mind by good thoughts to mine!! a thought is a diamond in a rough… steel whool/sandpaper polishes!!! a rough life is not a good enough excuse to excuse yourself from good nd proper reason……. lets think better.. not just think we better or not.. buh think better.. think of it… learn of it….. its just being GOOD times(x) trying… multiplies as better.!!… interst.. appreciation.. value..is good worth with time’s value..!!

    I understand that there are imperfect beings at home and it’s very difficult for today’s young people to earn a living with our high unemployment rate and lack of opportunity. However, we cannot tolerate cold-blooded murder in broad daylight.
    No one had a right to kill this young man in cold blood. That’s why we have law enforcement. Arrest him and try him in a court of law if he ran afowl of the law. But I will never support cold-blooded murder like that. I have family at home too.

      Miss.

      Hello. Well you are promoting violence in our country which is destructive to our citizens. Please spend more time to learn the English language and then you will be able to write better paragraphs. What are you teaching the young people in Dominica when you talk about taking revenge. Many of us make typographical errors but your writing gives us an insight into your education and your mentality . Thanks.

    Sin have taken over in Dominica, unless the people repent and come back to God, it will not get better but worse. Dominica need to come back to God. That is the only solution, and then everything else will fall in place.
    The person who killed this young man, if he was serving God in Spirit and in truth, this would not have happen.
    There is a devil loose in Dominica, and the church needs to come together and pray, the results willl follow.
    If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins, and will heal their land. 2nd Chronicles 7:14.

    Like it or not but truth is truth. Dominica God loves you.

    Everyday these people sit on the block destroying people children’s life. When they die everybody speak about them like they are saints. You all should realise that with all the shootings only the drug dealers are dying. They are shooting each other. I appreciate that they have family too but God does not lie. How you live is how you will die.

    I look at the comments posted on here and can’t help but shake my head; the excuses, the blame, the sudden welling up of sadness. It’s like “so unfortunate an innocent life was taken”. The hypocrisy is overwhelming, as if we didn’t know that is was bound to end this way. guns, drugs, violence and consequent violent death all come with the lifestyle that this young man chose.

    Most commentators who knew this young man knew the nuisance and menace that he was to society and rather than discouraging and standing against his displays of anti-social behavior hailed him as a hero. we as a society have come to glorify criminality without regard for the consequences until they hit home or close enough to home.

    i see open support from comments posted on here for drug peddling as a way of life, excuses are made and blame is cast all to justify the lack of ambition of these young men hence their turning to drugs to carve out a living. since when did dishonesty and criminality earn a dignified place in our society?

    Sadder still are the excuses to justify the trademark laziness of these young men, for even when they turn to drug peddling they won’t seek to obtain the drugs through their own effort, rather, like the deceased, they sit, they smoke and they wait for somebody else’s goods to come so they can steal it.

    i do hope we take example again of this latest brutal death and start shunning and speaking out against the drug pushing, stealing and gang culture that has infiltrated our society and plagued our youth.

      I could shake your big toe right now. Thats why i say they sanctify these people. I have known this young man all my life and he was not a saint. He has been a pain from young and people need to face the fact that this would have happened at some point. I feel for his mom because she is a really lovely woman.

    Are you a Nurse or a Doctor? How you know he could have made it the man recived muliple gun shot wounds to his chest and other parts of his body even if this had happened in roseau he would have not made it his injuries were to bad. However the hospital in portmouth do need some upgrading so the staff can perform the best they know how. At the end of the day they can only do what they can with what they have.

    People be real!!!! A state of the art hospital would have prevented everyone who got shot in this manner from dying? Let’s stop being ignorant people and teach our children girls/boys to stop the easy way of making money through drug trade and work hard honestly. We do need a proper Hospital in Portsmouth but don’t use this as though a certificate to avoid death. YOU LIVE BY THE GUN YOU DIE BY THE GUN. Turn to God.

    These kind of things will continue until social conditioning changes.Too much division in our small society.
    Red against blue, village against village,man against women, etc. No one is preaching unity from the heart. Church is moomoo. Politicians attacking each other. Peace and love will result in unity. All other measures will fail.

      The church is not moomoo.

      If you were going to church, you would know that the way of life some of us what to leave is spoken about all the time in church.

      Our heads are Too hard.

      our Hearts are Too hard.

      And we are too wicked.

      Good or bad life, a parent do not have to know that sometime gun down their child like an animal.

      We need to pray for each other.
      Find a church to worship and ask the almight father to forgive us for our sins, not to rejoice when something bad happens to somebody family.

      God is watching us!

      Hello. I understand what you are saying but those things don’t give anyone the right to take someone life. I don’t care how difficult or divided thing are there isn’t any reason to kill another human . Please young men look into your conscious and take a deep breath. This will give you time to think and make the correct choice which will not cause such pain in our beautiful country .

    I thought the killing would have stop after Proff and Armstrong died. Apparently is now it start so much negative people had to say when the two mentioned died oh is for drugs oh is for money oh is for this and that….. but one thing i know God has a way of punishing the wicked and evil minded people….so what if the man selling drugs to earn his living or make ends meet…but the way the system is now is that our young boys have to turn too…where is the job? and now the education system f*** up everybody must go secondary even if they meet the criteria or not and then what u r going to find in 5 years time children coming out like tebeh more than how they enter secondary can’t get a job because they don’t have a trade the government remove J.S.P so we complaining now about crime rate wait till the youngsters that in secondary come and can’t find work to do is drugs and more crime again.
    Anyway my deepest condolences to the family and friends of all those who were murdered

      This statement is very real; added to what I said below.

      If qualified exemplary teachers were paid as good as doctors, we would have a lot more teachers taking genuine interest in helping children to learn and grow academically & socially. A lot of teachers teach because that is their only option. It starts with the parents and is amplified through the teachers and school system.

      There is always room for improvement, with change it takes time. Just hope we work together as a nation to push through.

    Who do we blame in situations like these ?

    A man doeth what seemeth right in is own eyes , but in his end there-of are the ways of destruction . How manmy of our young boys , girls and young men and women do we find going to church and developing a faith in God ? It bleeds me to see so many on sundays hanging around smoking and living as they please fearless-ly . My heart is saddened for the children who are left without fathers who forsake right living and choose what they call ” their destiny ,” they’re hold on tho the precedence set by Fifty-cents of “getting rich or die trying”. If we’re to save society it has to be a general approach beginning from the family to the church , schools and society at large . We need to quit giving our young children those expensive cell-phones , cash advances and take back control of the social events they attend and times they return must be reviewed as well as leaving the house . Their needs be more parental supervision of their children’s lives ( friends esp ) , examine behavioral patterns , clothing , and unfamiliar marks .
    Until we do these things Dominica might turn out to be the leading crime country in the region and i must say God-for-bid .

    Both legal and illegal guns seem to be much more available in Dominica lately.

    Here are some (dated) statistics: http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/dominica

    And here is a link to the Dominica Firearms Act of 2011, http://www.dominica.gov.dm/laws/2011/Firearms.pdf which seems to have gone into effect 1Dec2011 only to be repealed in March2012. A lot of thoughtful work went into this 58-page law, but we question why ANY citizen or resident of Dominica (other than the police) should be licensed to carry ANY gun.

    For any true believer, do we really trust God? “My people, I AM your security!”

      Really? YOU are the problem.

      NO man needs to be shot 8 times. I have no idea if hew was a BAD or a GOOD man, God judges not me, but unless he was killing others I see the shooting as way too much.

      Every man has bad moments, some stay in them others rise above them. For me the ACTIONS are bad or good not the man.

      Gun culture is sexy to the young men here. What a waste of a nation’s youth.

      Grow up. It is up to the an himslef not God or Skerrit or the hospital or unemployment.

      I KNOW that the Cabrits was looking for men and only a few turned up. There are so many buildings going up in Possie right now. So much building work. Not the best work, but it is a start, gets you a house, a car, a few things, food for the children … then you move up as you can.

      Some do not want to work … too hard. They then blame poverty and unemployment for the THEIR wicked actions. Grow up.

    I would first like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of the deceased young man. May his soul Rest In Peace.

    Secondly I would like to address the disturbing trend of zero accountability which is plaguing this country. Why is it that every time something like this happens, the government of the day or the Prime Minister gets blamed? Isn’t everyone accountable for his or her own actions? I fail to believe that they were prompted by the PM to commit such heartless are gruesome crimes. It is time we address the situation and stop this ridiculous passing of the blame!
    I strongly agree with the other persons who spoke about bringing back the death penalty. To many murders walking our streets freely. Something must be done.

Do you think they are safer in a US school? Well I think they are even safer here cuz these shootings are gang related. Have u ever heard of mass murder or school shootings in Dominica? Get real!

      Yeah I understand your concern, but one youth gone is not a reason to fear for a US student life. YET.

      Though the trend is disturbing.

      For me the violence is not as scarey as the fact that they walk out of Stockie within weeks. Or never go there at all with bail money paid by drug peddling.

    Hello and good morning my people. First I want to offer my condolence to the victim family and may he Rest In Peace. The blame reside with the criminal who commit this vicious act and only that person is responsible. Now with such critical injuries in Portsmouth why don’t we have a Trauma Center where this victim could have been stabilized or treated without having to go to Town. If someone suffered multiple gun shots like this victim how can he survive if he is being transported to Town via an ambulance . Please young people if you are involved in this type of vicious cycle please change your behavior and look within yourself because if you don’t this behavior will lead to a dead end street.

    First of all RIP.

    What most people fail to realize is that Dominica really is developing. Yes there are less AVAILABLE opportunities than there was before but overall more opportunities nonetheless. And with good development there is also bad development.

    We as a nation need to find a way to help suppress the bad ones. To all those who are reaching for death penalty and (quite disturbingly) to drown them in the Atlantic, you are making the exact same decision to take ones life. This can not be the answer.

    Imagine a criminal knowing his most likely output of his next crime is also death wouldn’t that make him more dangerous? Lets start with the loopholes in the judicial system and a more sophisticated coastal guard system to help stop the importation of these new firearms. Not to overshadow the need for an advanced hospital but that in itself is only a cure for after the crime has been committed, not a solution to help stop it.

    RIP Mr. Augustine, I didn’t know you but you didn’t have to die that way. RIP

    The Minister Minister of health and to extend the Government of Dominica you all need to consider a upgraded hospital or state of the art Hosoital in Portsmouth.

    This hospital serves the North or a large population inthe north of Dominica , portsmouth is the second town and is developing,even Toursit are visting the area plus you have the carbrit Cruse Berth.

    Do something about the Hospital we are in 2013. Smiple accident you have to be transfering people being transfer to PMH hospital miles away. also if there isa disaster in the north we will all die if we have to be tranfer to Roseau

It is a known fact that the decease engaged in a few questionable practices which may have lead to his death . Our young men needs to know that a life surrounded and engaged in illegal drugs will ultimately cause harm to you and / or your family . Young men , please forsake this life of fast cash generated by drug selling . I truly wished that the deceased had an opportunity to survive to tell his life story and to change his life for the better .

People fought and hardly used weapons. Today, they cannot have an argument without killing someone. It is so sad.

Now I don’t support the Death Penalty because I don’t believed another human can be in a proper state of mind when committing such vicious crime. I have made many homicide arrest and I have worked on over fifteen hundred homicides and I never seen one where there isn’t some king of mitigating factor even though I don’t agree with the mitigating factor. I am sure that those criminals never witnessed an autopsy maybe we should make them see the damage they caused.

      State of the art hospital or not. I think 9-15 bullets would have done him in.

      Not to be political. But such hospital and upkeep of said hospital of which u speak. – state of the art- not to mention the training of the nurses and other professionals to use the equipment takes millions if not billions of dollars. We may be ready for it because of the advancement of our medical issues. But I assure u our pockets fall short. Even if someone donated us such a hospital it would be in ruins in just a few years cause we do not have the economy to support it.

Now we have suffered some nine shootings, three deaths from shooting and in the north where Behanzin raigned supreme, we have a total of 8 death from individuals that Behanzin had sent to prison or refused bail. Portsmouth people have themselves to blame. This man as killed, just down the road from the Portsmouth Police station, less than 200 yards. we polayed politics with our safety, while the politicians are safe in their home! In the time they forced Behanzin to go to Trinida, as the government reneged on their promise, the first six died. Earlier this month, Labastier was convicted of killing one of his own relatives in Vielle case and the cousin of the First Premier L. Leblanc. It was all ironic, since he killed the gentleman justy three months after the Court of Appeal reduced his sentence for throwing alcalie in the eyes of school children on a bus in Vielle Case!!!!!

    Only this morning it crossed my mind that there have been no murders in Dominica for a while. I always pray to God that there will be no more. This occurs when I am especially performing chores when all is quiet. God speaks to us specifically at such times when we are able to listen to him, to his advice, counseling and enlightenment.
    I am now thinking to myself why is it every time I think such matters have stabilized and hopefully will never occur that I hear of a murder in Dominica? The devil is rampant and so is his influence.
    I thought those who kill do not consider that they have taken a God-given precious life, that there is no excuse to do so and must consider they will pay the price to God, to society for harming and murdering their fellow people. Consider the grief and hardship that they place upon the family. People must think prior to committing a crime/murder.
    You cannot bring back a life. The DA Court System must be more stringent with them and grant them no parole. They should never be acquitted and by no means on any technicalities.
    The Law should punish them based on their crimes. For murder and also abduction it should be maximum sentence. No discounts and rebates for admitting their guilt, for not wasting the Court’s time in doing so (these are silly arguments which do not belong in a Court of Law and should never be mentioned) and for time spent while incarcerated while waiting the Court hearing. Dominica’s Law is in dire need of revamping.
    No one will escape the wrath of God and His fair and just recompense as each one deserves.
    Thou Shalt Not Harm your fellow people in anyway.
    Thou Shalt Not Kill.
    Lord, put a hand in this.
    Having stated this, my heartfelt sympathy to the deceased family. Take heart. God is with you. In Jesus Name, keep up the strength and faith. God bless you!

      I share your fraustration, i think that for a lawyer to say because his client pleaded guilty for what ever crime he/she committed that did’nt waisted the court’s time for time to be deducted from his sentense, that is just inapropiate. Now that guy who kidnapped that school girl for 40 days, he was already convicted and sent to jail for crimes, pertaining to the firearm and ammo.I did’nt see it fitting for the judge to say she was deducting from his sentense for time spent at the prison, this is sending a wrong signal

    So sad but to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. This is the land of the dying. He is gone home to the land of the living.

    :-| its so sad to hear that but again all these offenses are drug related. He was a nice young man but we all know the truth. This killing is senseless as all killings are however I want to appeal to young men everywhere, please do not get your self caught up in this drug snare. Work hard. Bend your back. Don’t give up. Its better you are poor and happy and safe than well off and unsafe. Enjoy life for enjoyment comes with simplicity

    The times are evil and will get more and more evil, that is what the word of God says.
    The heart of man is getting more and more wicked.
    The only answer is to turn to God by accepting His Son Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
    Repent means to turn towards God.
    The material things that man is searching, killing,destroyong for will amount to nothing in the end.
    Condolences to ALL those who have lost a loved one.

    Merlyn, Iz now you know you have family in Possie? You take time to recognise!

    Wha happening in Possie? Possie Youte need guidance, they need constructive and real solutions, they need jobs, they need rehabilitation for them paros…after years of voting Labour and Douglas clan..now is time for change..KEEP LABOUR BUT GET RID OF THIS WORTLESS MINISTER! Vote in someone who can rule and direct the community, who will fight and speak and encourage development for the community, who will put their voters need at the fore front of parliament and keep pushing for betterment…stop voting a womyal to re the town, a man who happy eating crumbs from the table and in all bacchanal…a man who happy going playing the dog on the National stage…if we so love possie and labour power then demand from the Prime Minister “WE WANT CHANGE..CHANGE OF MINISTER, CHANGE OF LOCAL COUNCILLOR, CHANGE OF POLICIES FOR PORTSMOUTH AND WE WANT JOB CREATION AND TRAINING FOR THE YOUTE THEM!” oh yes there is more we want to see happen but we need to work as a collective unit to achieve..Together we stand united, divided we will be stuck in the this time capsule and let’s face it Possienarians are too damm divided they need to unite first, put differences aside and come together in a positive way for the betterment of the community..JAH BLESS!

    On Thursday there was a meeting in the Credit Union Hall in Portsmouth which was held in regards to all the criminal activities going on in Possie, sad to say the attendance low. less than two days later another victim. People we need to get our selves sensitised about what is going on in our comunity.Am appealing to the organisers to have another meeting.let’s take this seriously people of Portsmouth and environs. Our children walk the streets we need them to be safe.

    Murder is no longer a crime in Dominica.If caught…the shooter will/must get bail.That is the trend here.Sad to say but those who do petty crime do all the time.No law here.If a man knows that he will be hanged for murder…he will behave,but nowadays,we have good defense criminal lawyers that help these animals roam our streets.Laws needs to be revised here A.S.A.P.

        Possie was and is still a bad village, in the 60 s they raid a police station killed police, shot some, possie is always a crime infected village, killing is something happening possie for a long long time

        That killing trend in Dominica especially Possie will cause Ross University to move out of the island, just a matter of time

        The government need to bring back hanging them low life tugs, this is becoming shooting is getting too out of control, especially in a small island like Dominica with a population of lest than ninety thousand

        The island need a cleansing
