Brazen Double Murder Recorded in San Pedro Town

Deon Faber

Two men were gunned down in a brazen daylight execution this afternoon in San Pedro Town. The victims have been identified as forty-one-year-old Deon Faber and thirty-four-year old Allen Martinez.  At around one o’clock this afternoon, the men were near a mechanic shop in the Boca del Rio area of town when they were approached by an unknown individual. That man is said to have convinced the men to follow him to the back of the mechanic shop where the murder is said to have occurred. Witnesses say that they heard several shots and saw the killer flee the scene on foot. One person is in police detention in relation to this double murder. It is reported that one of the men is known to be a gang associate of the Conch Shell Bay area of Belize City. Both victims are no stranger to the law. In August 2016, Martinez told News Five that he was beaten before being locked down for two days without any reason.

Back then, Martinez complained that after walking away from a charge of rape, he got into a beef with a police officer who reportedly brutalized him. Their beef was over the woman who accused Martinez of rape. Faber, on the other hand, was charged for ‘Possession of a Controlled Drug’ on February 2014 after he, along with another man, was caught with fifty-two point six grams of suspected marijuana and five-point four-three grams of suspected cocaine. The drugs were found at Faber’s residence in the Boca del Rio area. We’ll have more on the double homicide in Friday’s newscast.
