Dominique was 69 years old when he was shot four times in the chest and neck as he arrived for work at Radio Haïti. A station employee named Jean-Claude Louissaint was also killed in the attack.

In the years following Dominique’s assassination, civil society and grassroots groups in Haiti held large public protests and sit-ins calling for justice. International human rights organizations, launched years-long campaigns demanding justice.
There have been several obstructions and irregularities in the investigation into the murders, originating in the police, parliament, and the executive branch.
In 2000, supporters of chief suspect Dany Toussaint, some of them armed, threatened to set fire to the courthouse, and in 2001, Toussaint (then a sitting senator for the Fanmi Lavalas party).

In December 2004, more than 75% of documents relating to the investigation disappeared from the Cour de Cassation (Haiti’s Supreme Court), several suspects and witnesses died mysteriously. In March 2015 Aristide’s former chief of security Oriel Jean was gunned down by unknown assailants, after which journalist Guy Delva released an interview in which Jean suggested that Aristide had ordered Dominique’s assassination. To date, nobody have never been brought to justice. –
On Christmas Day 2002, there was an attempt on Michèle Montas’s life, his widow, her bodyguard, Maxime Seïde, was murdered. Amid increasing threats to the safety of Radio Haïti’s journalists, the station closed for good in February 2003.
