Howell Gillett

Earlier in the newscast, we told you about the search of the body of a Roaring Creek resident, who is presumed dead. While investigations continue by the Belmopan Police Formation, the department is also investigating a shooting on Friday night at the Blue Mountain Range on the Hummingbird Highway. Forty-seven year old Jose Abrego, a foreman of Saint Margaret’s Village was shot twice on the abdomen and once on the leg as he exited his workplace at Blue Mountain Ranch on his motorcycle. A man dressed in camouflage clothing with a hood over his head reportedly fired the shots at him.
