Two Murdered In The Boca Del Rio Area

San Pedro Police are investigating the shooting of two men which occurred on Thursday, March 21, 2019 in the Boca Del Rio Area. Police received a call of a shooting incident at about 1:30 p.m. and visited a blue house near a tire repair shop in the Boca Del Rio Area. Upon arrival they observed a dark skin male person with dreadlock hair lying face down in a pool of blood in the kitchen area bleeding profusely and still breathing. Further checks were made in one of the bedrooms located on the northern portion of the building which led to the discovery of a next male person lying face down apparently dead.

Initial investigation revealed that about 1:30pm while Deon Faber was outside his house and Allen Martinez was inside the house, when all of a sudden Deon Faber ran inside and shouted “gun man”. A male person of dark complexion, slim built about 5 feet 8 inches in height, wearing a red and white t-shirt with mask on his face approached the door of the house with a gun in his hand and began to shoot at Faber and Martinez causing the fatal injuries. The male person then managed to escape in a Northerly direction.

Daylight Double Murder In Busy Part of San Pedro

Two childhood friends were executed on La Isla Bonita this afternoon. They are 34 year old Allen Martinez also known as Spoon and 40 year old Deon Faber. According to our information, both men were at Faber's house. Faber was outside while Martinez was inside. Faber then ran to the house and shouted "gunman" and that is when the masked shooter opened fire. Martinez was struck to the neck and shoulder and Faber was hit to the back, chest and forearm. Police found Martinez's body in the kitchen while Faber's was in one of the bedrooms. Courtney Weatherburne returned from San Pedro an about an hour ago and here is what she found out on the ground.

This evening Boca Del Rio residents teamed up to wash away the blood from the pavement - the scene for a double homicide.

Allen Martinez and his friend Deon Faber were both shot and killed this afternoon around 1:30

In front of a welding shop. There isn't an official report as to what happened but residents say they saw the two men walk behind the welding shop, and that's when they heard gunshots. A resident told us that it seemed like Martinez and Faber were set up because a woman and two men came in a taxi wanting to buy weed and that is when the men were shot.

Martinez and Faber were then raced to the San Pedro polyclinic but they didn't make it. Shocked residents and relatives gathered at the clinic

We spoke to Martinez's older brother about this tragedy.

Joseph Martinez - Allen Martinez Brother
"For the most part of it he was a loving father who took care of his home. I mean of course people would paint him bad because of his selling of marijuana, stuff like that - but for the most part he was a loving and kind person. I mean he no try hurt anybody or anything like that as far as we know, so this came as a shock to us because we still try to wrap our head around exactly what happened and further than that we don't know, we haven't gotten any information to the exact details of what happened probably because they are still investigating - I'm not sure."

Courtney Weatherburne
"Residence in the area, police, nobody has given you anything?"

Joseph Martinez
"Police, nobody has given us anything as yet. I believe just because of again the investigation is going forward."

Courtney Weatherburne
"Do you know if he was hanging out there with the other guy who was shot with him?"

Joseph Martinez
"I'm not sure at the moment. All I know is that they both got shot at the same area, other than that I have no other information."

Courtney Weatherburne
"At this point you can't say who would want to target your brother and Mr. Faber?"

Joseph Martinez
"Actually no because this is just out of the blues - again, I didn't know him for having any trouble or anyone who would want to hurt both of them to that extent."

Courtney Weatherburne
"Finally for me, how painful it is for you as a brother and we have his wife right here and leaving his children behind."

Joseph Martinez
"It's very painful because he has a young son and we have to explain this to him, he might not understand. It's just painful; we just have to try make sense out of what happened."

Seven 9mm slugs were found on the scene. Martinez - who had been shot 6 years ago on San Pedro -  leaves behind a 9 year old son. Both Martinez and Faber are originally from Belize City but have been living on San Pedro for many years.

Still No Answers On San Pedro Murder

Last night 7news took you to San Pedro where two men were gunned down in broad daylight in a busy part of town. The report is that Allen Martinez and Deon Faber were at Faber's house located behind a mechanic shop. Faber was outside while Martinez was inside. Faber then ran to the house and shouted "gunman" and that is when the masked shooter opened fire. Martinez was struck to the neck and shoulder and Faber was hit to the back, chest and forearm. Both succumbed to their injuries.  We spoke to Martinez's brother yesterday and today we spoke to Faber's niece in Belize City. Both families say the same thing: they don't know why their loved one was murdered.

Courtney Weatherburne
"At this point police, nobody has really come here and spoken to you all to give you any additional information?"

Voice of Alisha Leslie - Niece
"No ma'am."

Courtney Weatherburne
"And as a family at this point you all have no idea who would want to target him or anything like that?"

Voice of Alisha Leslie - Niece
"No we still no know as yet at this point, we still left in shock we still don't know who would do this to our uncle, we still in shock. He was a loving person, he was always there for us, he was like a father, during whatsoever he was always there for everyone, especially his mom and his kids and wife. He was a joyous person, he used to always run joke with us, the death of him right now is still a shock to us, we still can't believe that he is gone. He will be truly missed by us."

Both men were childhood friends. Both are known to police, but their families can't say if their record has anything to do with their execution. Faber also leaves behind children.

1 Man Detained for Double Murder in San Pedro; another Man and Woman are Being Sought

A woman and two men were captured on surveillance camera arriving by boat in San Pedro just prior to the double murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez. The woman was carrying a child and a diaper bag. The trio headed up Pescador Drive and would arrive at Faber’s house, but she stayed one block away. The two gunmen proceeded to the house just after one o’clock on Thursday afternoon. Faber was inside his house and was executed in his bedroom while Martinez, who was visiting, was shot twice and expired soon after. Faber’s wife was saved; she hid under a table. The gunmen left the house; one of them who is expected to be charged over the weekend, was nabbed by police just before he boarded a water taxi. News Five’s Duane Moody reports on the brazen murder on the island.

Duane Moody, Reporting

One man has been detained and San Pedro Police are looking for another, as well as a woman, who they believe can help in the ongoing investigation into the double murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez. The childhood friends have been living on the island for years, but on the afternoon of March twenty-first, one of two men, who entered Faber’s house in the Boca del Rio area of the island town, opened fire on the unsuspecting duo, killing Faber on the spot inside a bedroom. He was discovered motionless and face down with multiple shots to the back and arm. Martinez was discovered face down in the kitchen having been shot to the neck and shoulder; he succumbed on arrival at the San Pedro Polyclinic.

Supt. Reymundo Reyes, O.C., San Pedro Police

“Police visited the residence of Mister Deon Faber where on arrival, police saw the body of a male person lying inside his bedroom and he was not responsive. That was that of Mister Deon Faber. Further checks in the kitchen area, we saw a next male person, namely Mister Allen Martinez. He was still alive; it could have been seen that he was gasping for air so he was immediately rushed to the polyclinic but pronounced dead on arrival at the polyclinic. So far, police have canvassed the area. We have obtained useful information and as a result, one individual has been detained pending investigation of that double murder.”

Police say they have been able to gather enough evidence including surveillance footage that would confirm that a woman carrying a toddler and diaper bag, as well as two men, arrived on the island shortly before the execution. The woman was seen in proximity to the crime scene as the two men carried out the heinous crime. After police canvassed the area, they believe they were able to nab one of the suspects, based on the footage; the woman and the other man, known to them as a resident of Belize City, escaped on a passenger boat back to the city. It is believed that the woman carried the gun in the diaper bag.

Supt. Reymundo Reyes

“The investigation is pretty young, but we are sure through our interviews and canvassing of the area that we have done, we have come up with information that apparently there was a female who was along with these two individuals prior to the shooting and after the shooting and that’s why we are saying that she would be able to assist us with this investigation. Whether they have any relative or friends on the island, we cannot say, but we know that they are people from Belize City who came yesterday and they left yesterday also. One of the suspects was detained when he was about to board one of the vessels going to Belize City, but the other two persons had already left. So that is the reason why we are looking for those other two individuals.”

For seventeen years, Faber has been living at the same location in San Pedro, to the rear of a mechanic shop, while Martinez lived in the Bay area of the island town. Superintendent Reymundo Reyes says that both men are known as drug peddlers on the island, but a motive for the crime cannot be ascertained.

Supt. Reymundo Reyes

“Since I have been attached here to San Pedro, I can say that yes, we have had contact with them. I can say that they are no strangers to us when it comes to the peddling of drugs. At this moment, we cannot say what is the motive of the incident or the shooting. We know that two persons arrived at the premises normally; they just walked into the yard, apparently met with Mister Deon and all of a sudden this is when the wife, who was in the kitchen area also saw him running towards the front door and he immediately hollered, “Watch out; gunman.” And then shots were fired at him. He managed to run inside his house towards the bedroom and the persons continued to fire shots at his direction. After he dropped that is when the gunman turned his attention to Mister Martinez and fired two or three shots at him. The wife…upon hearing the first sound of the gunshot, she managed to duck under the table and apparently that is what saved her.”

Eight expended nine millimetre shells were recovered from the scene. Duane Moody for News Five.

More Boots on Ground in San Pedro to Avert Retaliation in Wake of Double Murder

Since the start of the year, and including Thursday’s double homicide, there have been four murders in San Pedro. It is two more than last year’s statistics for the island during the same period. The crime situation, including narco-trafficking, is a major concern for Superintendent Reymundo Reyes, who says that murders on the island have been far and apart. In the wake of the double murder of Martinez and Faber, they have placed additional boots on the ground to monitor the activity of suspected gang affiliates from coming to and from the island in an effort to prevent any retaliation. 

Supt. Reymundo Reyes, O.C., San Pedro Police

“We have been given assistance from inland with the support from people from operational units who will be staying here on the island and assisting us in patrolling the area and also monitoring people coming in and out of the island because we do not know whether we will have any sort of retaliation by any side of the relatives from Mister Martinez or Mister Faber. So extra patrol, extra boots have put in place on the island here as we speak to try and calm the situation. The investigation is pretty young; we know that…we believe that at the end of the day, once we get the necessary information that we need that we could make an arrest for this incident.”

San Pedro Police have formally charged 25-year-old Anthony Carballo for the double murder of Allen Martinez and Deon Faber. Faber and Martinez were gunned down by a masked gunman on Thursday, March 21st, on Laguna Drive in the Boca Del Río Area of San Pedro Town. Carballo is expected to be arraigned for the crime tomorrow Monday, March 25th at the San Pedro Magistrate Court.

The accused Carballo was only recently released from prison for the 2012 murder of Jermaine McNab. After serving 6 years on remand there was not enough evidence to convict him for that murder.

Police looking for more suspects in the double murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez

The arraignment of 25-year-old Anthony Carballo on Monday, March 25th for the murder of island residents Deon Faber and Allen Martinez did not close the case, as police continue to seek additional suspects. Police are looking for a female who is believed to have taken part in the shooting death of Faber and Martinez on March 21st in the Boca del Rio Area and has since left the island. A motive for the crime has not been established, but authorities are speculating it could have been a robbery gone wrong, instead of drugs as initially suspected.

Police shared with the media that Carballo, along with other persons, traveled to the island the day of the double murder. According to a report, surveillance footage showed the attack on Faber and Martinez being carried out by a gunman appearing to be Carballo. The official report states that about 1:30PM an armed male person went to Faber’s house and fired several shots at Faber and Martinez, who was visiting. Upon further review of the surveillance footage in the area, a woman was observed near the crime scene, and it is believed that she was transporting the weapon. She and the other persons managed to leave the island before they could be apprehended. Both Faber and Martinez had been living on the island for quite some time, and according to people that knew them, they were friends from childhood while growing up in Belize City.
