Headline News: Man dead after attempted masked robbery

Shortly after 9:00 p.m. a single gunshot rang out in the Tres Cocos Area in Ambergris Caye. When police officials arrived at the scene around 10:00 p.m. the body of Lionel Aldana was found dead from a single gunshot wound. The body was transported to the San Pedro Police Department.

Initial police investigations reveal that two men were returning to town from hunting on the northern end of the island when upon reaching the Tres Cocos vicinity a log was seen lying in the middle of the road. The driver stopped the vehicle and got out to investigate. It is alleged that two masked men came out of hiding and the driver, fearing for his life, fired a single gunshot from his licensed gun. Investigations continue into the incident but reliable sources have confirmed that the driver is an employee of the San Pedro Town Council.
