Haitian Warehouse Owner Kills Looter

October 07, 1994|Times Wire Services

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The owner of a warehouse in Port-au-Prince fired on looters Thursday, killing one person as U.S. forces were called in to calm the situation.

"I'm not going to lose anymore," said Alan Francillon, the owner.

Looting, which has devastated properties in the port area, is moving into other parts of the capital as civilians, emboldened by the lack of local security from either the feared police force or the army, perform a daily ritual of destruction.
