By Aaron Humes: A rare shooting incident in the Culture Capital, Dangriga, was reported on Sunday evening.
Nyle Vasquez,26, is stable in the Southern Regional Hospital after being shot in the upper back during an argument over money owed to him for work that he previously did.
Assistant Commissioner of Police and Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch, Joseph Myvette, explained: “…Vasquez was in the Lakeland area of Dangriga Town, shortly before 6 p.m., where he was in discussion with someone who owed him some money, and as a result, an argument ensued between himself and that person whilst he was still sitting in his vehicle. As a result, he was shot by a second person who arrived on the scene. So, in relation to this investigation, police [are] seeking two persons.”
Police are looking at several other angles in relation to the incident apart from the dispute, but would not say whether it is related to other recent incidents.
Vasquez was arrested two times in 2018 – once for a non-fatal shooting and then later for the murder of Melvin Locke.
