“Police visited a scene in the New Site area of Dangriga Town sometime after one a.m. where they saw the lifeless body of Emerson Nunez, thirty three year old. Initial investigation reveals that Nunez was in the company of two other male persons sometime around midnight and these male persons exited his home and he was with them.  Neighbors are saying they heard a loud argument between these three men. Then, they heard what appeared to be gunshots. When police arrived on the scene, Nunez was seen suffering from body injuries consistent with that of bullet wounds. We at the Police Department are looking at the ankle that maybe he knows these persons and it would want to appear that maybe if you have somebody in your home and you walk out with them that person had to be some form of friend or something for you to let that person into your home, unless of course it was under duress and you know that was the fact in this case as yet.”
