By Aaron Humes: Police are looking for one person in connection with the shooting of Erwin Santos, 30, of Teakettle village, Cayo District.

Santos and a woman were socializing at his mother’s house when two men approached with cloth covering their faces from behind the yard and opened fire. Santos was hit in the right upper arm and right upper thigh but managed to confront his attackers and unmask one of them, but was unable to prevent their escape.

Erwin Santos was transported to the Western Regional Hospital, Belmopan, for Medical Attention. He is listed in stable condition and the suspect has been identified and is being sought at this time.

Notably, in 2017 Santos was the suspect in two murders in the Cayo District. He was captured by police after being on the run for several days. Santos was charged with a firearm offense and sentenced to five years in prison, but to date has not been charged with the murders.
