Ernesto Williams, the proprietor of Sky Deck on Baymen Avenue, Belize City, was executed on January twenty-fourth as he left a friend’s residence on Orange Street. Surveillance footage in the area captured as the gunman approached and fired the deadly shots at Williams. There is reportedly no evidence to suggest that the businessman’s life had been threatened, but police say that they are following several leads to determine a motive. At the press brief today, Superintendent Alejandro Cowo confirmed that several persons had been detained for questioning.
