In Corozal, police are investigating a murder that occurred this afternoon. It happened in Calcutta Village and we understand forty-one-year-old Raymond Jenkins was shot multiple times while inside his vehicle. According to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, two men on motorcycles approached the vehicle and released a barrage of bullets, killing Jenkins.

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police 

“I received a briefing from OC Corozal about an hour and a half ago that the victim may have gone to some jewelry repair shop and while he was there in his vehicle two persons came on a motorcycle and fired several shots in the vehicle. He was caught and eventually he was rushed to the hospital and he later succumbed to his injuries. That is what I have so far.”
