By Aaron Humes: The two men who assaulted Orange Walk Town Council employee Pedro Molina and Luis Ucan early on Saturday are still being sought by police.
As explained by Officer Commanding Eastern Division, Assistant Commissioner Hilberto Romero, “On Saturday, 13 May 2023, around 2 a.m., Orange Walk Police responded to a shooting at Mahogany Street in Orange Walk [Town]. Upon their arrival, they found Pedro Molina with a cut wound to the forehead and Luis Ucan with a gunshot injury. The investigation is that they were at a house when two male persons came in, one armed with a firearm who shot Ucan, and the other one proceeded to hit Molina on the forehead with a metal pipe.”
The men were taken to hospital. While police downplayed early reports, it is believed that a prior altercation between Molina, Ucan, and their attackers at a nearby nightclub led to the shooting/beating incident. Investigations continue.
