Witness to Mario Vernon Shooting Claims Death Threats by Police

Cleevan Wade

Are Punta Gorda police interfering with a purported witness in the officer-involved killing of Mario Vernon?  Amateur footage has surfaced showing an altercation between a PG resident who emotionally charges to have seen firsthand the fatal shooting of the twenty-four-year-old grandson of famed Belizean musician Leela Vernon.  While none of the officers in the video are recorded making threats on the life of the onlooker, Cleevan Wade claims to have been threatened with death by one of the men inside a mobile patrol.  Here’s a look at the viral video.
