In broad daylight on August 20, 2017, shots rang through a bar in San Pedro. Those bullets claimed the life of a 34-year-old carpenter and fisherman, Armando Lopez. Lopez was shot and before he could have been rushed to the polyclinic, he succumbed to his injuries.

The murder of Lopez left the island in disbelief. Shootings on the island have continued to increase. Four days before the murder of Lopez, Scott Charles was murdered at his home on the island. Four days before the murder of Charles, a shooting incident occurred where two primary school students and one adult were injured.

In the case of Lopez, eyewitnesses claimed to have seen two gunmen who made their escape in a boat. It wasn’t until August 30, 2017, 10 days after the gruesome murder, that word came about of someone being charged. While information is little, what is known is that a 16-year-old minor has been charged in relation to the murder of Lopez.
