Who Wanted Orlando Vasquez Dead in Corozal?

Meanwhile in Corozal Town on Saturday night, an unnamed gunman came whistling at a residence, and when twenty-eight-year-old Orlando Vasquez peered outside of his mother’s house to see who it was, he was met with a barrage of gunshots.  Vasquez is presently hospitalized and investigators are seeking a person of interest.



ACP Hilberto Romero, Regional Commander, Eastern Division

“On Saturday, January 20th, 2024, around eight p.m., Corozal police responded to an area in the Joseito Layout area where they found Orlando Vasquez, twenty-eight-years old with gunshot injuries.  Orlando Vasquez reported that he was at home when he heard someone whistle.  He came out to see who it was, at which point a male person fired several shots towards him, causing injuries to him.  He is at the hospital receiving treatment and is in a stable condition.  We are seeking one suspect.”



“Sir, could this be a case of mistaken identity because I believe he was at his mother’s house?”


Hilberto Romero

“Yes, he was at his mother’s house and when he heard the whistling he came out to check who it was.”
