Jose Castellanos

Police continue to investigate a fatal shooting in the west that occurred last Thursday in Santa Elena. Jose Castellanos, also known as “El Chele” was at a restaurant when he was shot by Nevis Betancourth.  There are conflicting reports on how the shooting occurred, but an eyewitness reports that Betancourth initially attacked Castellanos who pulled out a machete to defend himself. Betancourth’s arm was almost severed and he remains hospitalized.  But it ended fatally for Castellanos when Betancourth brandished his licensed gun and fired the deadly shots.
