Humberto gonzalez22-year-old Humberto Gonzalez died on Tuesday morning after he was shot shortly after leaving a bar in Ranchito Village in the Corozal District. Police report that at around 12:10 on Tuesday morning, they found the body of Humberto Ivan Gonzalez at the Corozal Community Hospital. Gonzalez had gunshot wounds to the right side of the chest.

Investigations revealed that at around 11:00 on Monday night, Martin Armstrong, a money changer of Crozal Town left the Palacio Dulce Bar in the company of Gonzalez. As he got into his red Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and left the establishment, he came under fire by two men who were waylaying him nearby. Armstrong managed to escape unhurt but Gonzalez was not as lucky. He was fatally injured and died shortly after the incident.

Police are investigating the incident and are leaning towards the possibility that the shooting was drug related. There have been at least three other murders in the Corozal district in three months.
