2 Teens Gunned Down in Orange Walk

Erlindo Matura

At around four-thirty this afternoon, two teenagers were gunned down on Cristock Street in Orange Walk Town. Minutes ago, the bodies were still on the ground while investigators scoured the scene. Police sources tell News Five that three youths who are well known to them were on Cristock Street when a man on a bicycle rode up and unleashed a hail of lead. Nineteen year old Erlindo Matura and sixteen year old Rene Acevedo tried to run to Matura’s home nearby, but fell and died before they could reach. Police say there was a third man with Matura and Acevedo who was also wounded, and they are currently looking for that man. As we told you, Police are still on the scene so details are sketchy. We’ll have much more on this story in Tuesday’s newscast.
