Chinese Grocer Shoots Robber On San Pedro

And another young man was killed this weekend - allegedly in the commission of a robbery. 21 year old Ajlan Raheem Requena was shot once to the chest when he was allegedly involved in the robbery of a convenience store on San Pedro.

It happened at W and W Convenience Store in the DFC area of San Pedro Town at 8:00 on Saturday night. The San Pedro Sun reports that the storeowner's wife and her 14 year old son were tending the business when two men pulled up on bicycles with their shirts pulled over their faces. One of them pulled out a 38 revolver, and pointed it at the storeowner's wife while the other jumped behind the counter to get to the cash. The 14 year old slipped out and alerted his father who came back in with his firearm, a licensed Ruger 9 millimeter pistol. He fired a warning shot and the armed robber responded.

Gunshots were exchanged and that is when Requena who did not have a gun was shot. He dashed out the store and fell dead in a drain at the back. He was found with the shirt still pulled over his face.

Police say it appears to have been a case of self-defence but the file is still being sent on to the DPP.

21 year old Ajlan Requena was the son of retired BDF Lieutenant Requena Gilroy Requena. He had just arrived on the island from Cayo two days before he was killed. No one on the island knew him, so he remained unidentified until this morning when and his father contacted police today to report that it could be his son. His worst fears were confirmed when he visited the morgue.
