By BBN Staff: Earlier today, Breaking Belize News reported that there was a shooting incident in the waters of Belize near San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.

Luis Enrique Santoya, 27, Ricardo Anthony Espat, 23, Kirian Espat, 26, and Jerry Espat, 25, all fishermen and residents of the San Pedrito area of San Pedro, were reportedly diving for conchs in the Cangrejo Caye area when they claimed to have been ambushed.
