Guillermo Salazar Shot In The San Pedrito Area - 03/29/18 11:35 AM

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.

Police Try to Figure Out Island Shooting

Last night we told you about the execution style shooting in San Pedro on Tuesday night. A hooded, masked gunman dressed in full camouflage shot 26 Year old Guillermo Salazar in his back as he arrived at his home in the San Pedrito area. Police say his wife was along with him at the time:

ASP Alejandro Cowo, Head of CIB
"San Pedro Police visited the San Pedro polyclinic where they observed Mr. Guillermo Salazar with apparent gunshot wounds to his back and to the front of his stomach area. He was admitted there in a critical condition. He was flown to Belize City and he is in a critical condition at the KHMH. What we understand is that Mr. Salazar was walking on the San Pedrito road with his wife when about to approach his yard, a male person came out from the nearby area and fired several shots at his direction causing the above mentioned injuries."

"We suspect that it is the same dispute between the two rivals that are in the San Pedrito area but so far we have nothing to point out that it is as a direct response to what happened before between them."

Police say they have no motive so far and no one detained.
