Scott Charles: Were Drugs a Motive for Murder?

Scott Charles

Four days prior to Lopez’s murder, his friend Scott Charles was targeted inside his home in the Bayside neighborhood. Charles heard a knock and when he opened the front door, a barrage of bullets would be unleashed on him. The twenty-four-year-old was airlifted to the K.H.M.H., but died just after one on Thursday afternoon. But are the two murders related?

“I will not be in a position to give you an update on that issue at this time. When I go on the ground and do my assessment, I’ll have the press office forward any further information that we may have from San Pedro.”

“Sir, indications to us are that this incident may be part of a drug turf war between two factions on the island. Could you comment on that? Are police investigating along those routes?”


ACP Edward Broaster

“That may be the case, but until we verify that it is, we will be looking at all actions at this time.”
