By BBN Staff: Our newsroom has confirmed that a man from Santa Elena, Cayo was murdered last night.
A group of people were socializing at a Chinese restaurant and bar located next to the Santa Elena Primary School on Bishop Martin Street when a major fight broke out between two groups. The fight involved both men and women and included fist fights and bottles hurled after rivals involved in the commotion.
According to eyewitnesses, Berris Budna Taylor was stabbed in the altercation, and this has since been confirmed by family members. Taylor was rushed to the San Ignacio Hospital but he died shortly after.
The incident occurred around 10 p.m. last night in the proximity of the Santa Elena Sporting Complex where the first ever family fair was being held. However, the incident was not triggered by the fair itself, but rather by an argument that began at the Chinese establishment.
