ajlan raheem requena.jpg - 55.09 KbAjlan Raheem Requena, 21, was shot to death on Saturday, December 21, by a storeowner who claims that he tried to rob him.

 The owner, his wife and his son were inside their business place, W & W Convenience Store, located in the DFC area on San Pedro Town when 2 men, with their shirts over their faces pulled up on bicycles and rushed in.

One of the men pulled out a .38 revolver and pointed it at the storeowner’s wife, while the other jumped over the counter to grab the cash. Their 14 year-old old son alerted his father who pulled out his licensed 9mm pistol and fired a warning shot. There was an exchange of gunfire when the armed robber fired back, and that’s when Requena, the man who tried to grab the cash, was shot.

 Both men tried to flee, but Requena didn’t get far; he fell dead in a drain in the back. He was found with the shirt still over his face.

San Pedro Police have found evidence which all suggests that Requena was killed in self-defence. Nevertheless, it will be forwarded to the DPP for her directives.

 Requena is the son of Retired BDF Lieutenant Gilroy Requena, who positively identified his son’s body. He told police that his son had just left San Ignacio for San Pedro a couple days before he was killed.
