A stevedore was killed last night just after eight o’clock in Belize City. Around eight-thirty, 55-year-old, Edward Reuben Saldano Sr, a resident of Plues Street, was riding his bicycle on Wilson Street. While nearing the BWS plant a Nissan Murano SUV approached Saldano. Two men then exited the vehicle and opened fire on Saldano, killing him on the spot. According to Assistant Superintendent of Police, Fitzroy Yearwood several men known to police are being sought in connection with this incident and it is his belief that Saldano was gunned down senselessly.
Notably, Saldano’s son Edward Saldano Jr., who is a known criminal element, is currently on the run from police after escaping custody.
