Glenn Murillo, 21, shot on Vernon Street

BELIZE CITY, Mon. July 13, 2015–On Saturday night, July 11, Glenn Murillo, 21, was shot in the right upper arm as he was talking to two friends on Vernon Street in front of a Chinese store. The shooter simply came up and fired three shots at him.

Murillo’s two friends escaped unhurt and the shooter fled the area, but GSU who were on patrol in the area quickly intercepted the gunman and captured him. He is now in custody, along with the gun he allegedly used for the shooting.

Superintendent Hilberto Romero announced today at the police press brief that the shooter, who is a minor, is strongly believed to be the person who shot and killed Amandala reporter Kareem Clarke, 27, who was shot multiple times while riding home on Vernon Street on his bicycle at about 12:30 Monday morning, July 5.

The shooter is expected to be charged with murder for Clarke’s death at the conclusion of the investigation tomorrow, said Romero.
