Thursday, May 8, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Belize City resident twenty seven year old Vince Martinez Junior was shot and killed last night in Ladyville village, Belize District.
Police say that when they went to the scene of the homicide, a bus stop in front of the Puma Gas Station, around 6:15 pm on Wednesday, they found Martinez’ body in a pool of blood with a single gunshot wound to the right side of the head.
Initial investigations by police reveal that Martinez was sitting under the bus stop when a man of dark complexion came running from the direction of Marage Road and allegedly fired the single fatal gunshot.
Police say the gunman wore a white shirt and black long pants.
After the shooting, authorities say the gunman ran back from the direction he came from and got into a car that was apparently waiting for him, making good his escape.
