Shopkeeper’s Accused Murderer is a Minor

Reniery Figueroa Garcia

Meanwhile, police have made an arrest for Thursday’s murder in San Pedro. Twenty-five-year-old Honduran national Reniery Figueroa Garcia, owner of Dicky’s Store in the San Mateo area, was shot to the head. Figueroa was seated behind the counter of his business when two men entered. One fired a single gunshot him before they escaped towards the lagoon. Police say a minor has been charged for the execution, but they are looking for others.

“Reference the murder of Adalid Figueroa Garcia, which occurred on the twenty-sixth, San Pedro police last night charged a minor for that murder, and they have another person in custody that is presently being investigated for that same crime.”

“Has it been established that this was a robbery attempt, sir? What is the nature of the incident which led to Mr. Figueroa being killed?”


ASP Alejandro Cowo

“So far there is no indication that it is a robbery. We are getting other information as to what led to the death of the male person but it is part of the investigation at this moment; we can’t give it to the media.”
