By BBN Staff: Orange Walk police are investigating a case of double murder after two men were shot dead in that municipality.
The deceased men have been identified as Junior Triminio, 34, and Christopher Caulderon, 19.
Shortly after 5 o’clock yesterday evening, the men were socializing with a group of friends on Zericote Street across the Louisiana football field where the Mundialito tournament had been ongoing.
That was when a white Jeep pulled up beside them and a masked armed assailant exited and began shooting into the crowd indiscriminately.
Triminio and Caulderon attempted to run away but the gunman followed closely behind them and continued to shoot.
Triminio, was shot seven times to the head and body and died on the scene.
Caulderon, shot six times to the head and body, died while receiving medical attention at the Northern Regional Hospital.
Sixteen expended shells were recovered from the crime scene by investigators.
Police have not identified any suspects although while following up on a lead they have detained one man for questioning.
Police have not yet established a motive for this double murder but they believe that Triminio was the target. According to them, he has a history of drug trafficking charges.
