UPDATE – REPORTER: News Staff, –

Tensions are high in Orange Walk Town after more violence and bloodshed resulted in the death of one man and another clinging to life at the KHMH.

At around 12:48 am Police were called to the intersection of Sapodilla and Zericote Streets where they found an unconscious Justin Diaz, 23, suffering from gunshot wounds to his chest and leg. According to reports Diaz was on the street when a dark colored car sped past and a gunman inside opened fire.

At Around 12:30am that same morning Samuel Castro, 25, was shot dead while standing in front of a house on Muffles Street. A gunman rode by on a motorcycle and released multiple shots at him which penetrated his back and arm.

The two shootings are thought to be gang related, though sources say Castro’s murder may have been a case of mistaken identity.
