Suspect in San Pedro Murder to Hand Himself into Police

News Five has been informed that on the advice of his attorney, an Asian businessman turned himself over to police for the San Pedro murder of Brandon Humes which occurred on Thursday morning in the island town. Humes was shot multiple times to the body as he sat on a sofa inside an apartment on Coconut Drive just before nine o’clock. The murder weapon, a nine millimetre gun, was found on the steps to the apartment by the landlady. At this time, a motive for the crime is unknown, but News Five has been reliably informed that Humes had travelled to San Pedro the day before to seek employment. In the wake of that shooting, police have been on high alert in the south side of Belize City; so much so that this morning, GSU officers descended on a property off Caesar Ridge Road, where Humes was known to frequent.
