Police arrest two for killing of Kaleem Chun, but motive remains unclear

Posted: Wednesday, December 27, 2023. 9:54 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: On Wednesday afternoon police announced charges of murder against Louis Barillas, 23, and Lazaro Barrientos, 20, both of Punta Gorda Town, Toledo District, in the death of Kaleem Chun, 30.

(L-R) Louis Barrillas and Lazaro Barrientos, accused in the murder of Kaleem Chun.

Chun and three other men, one on a bicycle, traversed up Main Street in the southernmost town early on Christmas Day, when according to surveillance footage there was a confrontation that led to Chun being shot dead and his attackers fleeing.

But Police, according to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Hilberto Romero, don’t yet know why Chun was targeted, something that also baffles Punta Gorda residents: “We have not established a motive. All we know is that they knew each other and they were walking together.”
