Toledo man shot dead in Orange Walk

Toledo man shot dead in Orange Walk

Belize City, August 15, 2012

The seemingly unstoppable crime wave moved from Corozal Town to Belize City and then Orange Walk Town this week, as a man from Toledo was ambushed and killed in that town early Wednesday morning.

Police authorities believe 33 year old Fernando Quib was ambushed, robbed and then shot dead as he waited inside his delivery truck around 3am on Wednesday.

Quib, who travelled to Orange Walk to deliver and collect goods, was stranded after his truck experienced mechanical problems. He took the truck to a mechanic but it could not be fixed right away. He decided to spend the night in Orange Walk, so he parked the truck in front of the mechanic shop and spent the night inside the truck.

But it appears criminals were watching his every move and as he rested in the wee hours of the morning, they struck mercilessly. Quib was shot and killed. His belongings were then stolen.

When Police arrived at the scene around 5am, they found his body inside the truck. The vehicle’s windows had been shattered and a bullet hole was seen through the window and the driver’s seat.

Police are investigating the latest murder and do not have any suspects.
