Minor Also Main Suspect in Friday Night Shooting

Hilberto Romero

But the minor, who has since been detained in connection with the murder of Kareem Clarke, is also the main suspect in a shooting that occurred on Friday night in the Old Capital.  Around ten-thirty p.m., Glenn Murillo was in front of a Chinese store on Vernon Street with two friends when a gunman walked up to them and fired three shots. The twenty-one year old stevedore was hit to the right arm; he was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is in a stable condition. Murillo is cooperating with police and investigations have since led to the detention of the minor, who is reportedly from the area.

“Again on Friday, police responded to a shooting incident where they found Glenn Murillo, twenty-one years, with a single gunshot wound to the upper arm. He was taken to the K.H.M.H. and he was treated; he is in a stable condition. We have one person detained for questioning in regards to that shooting.”

“Do you all know why exactly…have you all been able to establish a motive for this one as well?”

“No, again, we have our investigators working. We are working with the complainant. We know he went to the store and he was approached by one person who fired shots at him.”
