An attempted execution has left a Seine Bight Villager hospitalized with gunshot wounds he suffered during the incident. At around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, police responded to information of a shooting incident in Seine Bight Village on the Placencia Peninsula. Upon arrival at the scene, police met Austin Williams, the victim.

Williams reported that while standing at a street corner with a friend, Ralph Forbes, they were approached by a male person who fired several shots in their direction, two of which caught Williams. He was hit twice, once to the left side of his lower back and one to the left cheek.

Nyle Vasquez, a 23-year-old resident of Dangriga Town, has been charged in relation to this incident. He was formally arrested and charged on Friday May 18, 2018 for the use of deadly means of harm and wounding against Williams. He has since been arraigned at the Independence Magistrate’s Court and remanded.
