Death Finds Mechanic in his Own Yard…

Hilberto Romero

There was another murder, this time in the dangerous streets of the south side in the Old Capital. Thirty-eight year old mechanic, Jason Paulino, was shot to the head, abdomen and left shoulder as he sat inside his yard on Neal Pen Road. Just before ten on Sunday morning, Paulino and two friends were socializing when two men on a motorcycle approached the trio. The passenger on the cycle pulled out a firearm and fired several shots at Paulino, who attempted to escape the hail of bullets, but fell. That’s when the gunman jumped off the motorcycle, stood over Paulino and emptied the barrel of the gun. The victim was rushed to the K.H.M.H., but died within an hour.

“The information we have gathered so far is that it was a misunderstanding that he had with some persons. We do not believe that it is gang related. Some incident he had a week ago with some persons and that resulted in that shooting. We have several persons detained, we are recording statements but likewise no one has been charged in connection with that murder likewise.”


In reference to Friday’s murder of Corey Howard, Superintendent Romero says several persons have been detained in connection with that murder.
