There has been another execution style shooting in San Pedro - but this one didn't kill the target, but he is in critical condition tonight.
26 year-old Guillermo Salazar was shot by a man who ambushed him last night while trying to get inside his house in the San Pedrito area.
Police say that at around 10:30, Salazar arrived at his front gate, and as soon as he was about to open it, a shooter, dressed in full camouflage, with a hoodie pulled over his head, and a rag over his face, snuck up on him.
That gunman shot him in the right hand, and as soon as he turned to sprint away, the assailant shot him once more. The bullet hit him to the left side of his back, and it exited his left lower chest. He was transported to the KHMH in a critical condition.
Sources on the island say that residents are baffled as to why the gunman tried to kill him.

Around 10:30PM on Tuesday, March 27th, 26-year-old Guillermo Salazar was attacked and shot in front of his house in the San Pedrito Area by a lone gunman.
