On June 15, 2017, 3 weeks after the murder of 42-year-old Andrew Ian “Hard Rock” Bennett, police arrested and charged 26-year-old Belize City resident, David Richard Arnold, for his murder.

Bennett, who was loved by many, was executed in cold blood on Central American Boulevard in front of his home.

Arnold was taken back to court on Wednesday, August 9, 2017, two months after Bennett’s death, where he appeared before Magistrate Aretha Ford. Arnold’s case was given another adjournment because there is no case file against him yet. Arnold is expected back in court on October 31, 2017.

On Wednesday, May 24, 2017, police received information of someone being shot. As a result, precinct one Crimes Investigation Branch personnel visited Central American Boulevard in front of a bus shed where they saw the body of Andrew Bennett lying face down on the street. He was suffering from several apparent gunshot wounds to the head and body.

Initial investigation revealed that earlier that night, Bennett was at the bus shed when a man approached him and fired several shots in his direction causing his injuries. According to police, the gunman was seen running down Antelope Street heading into the direction of Curassow Street.
