Minor charged with murder

A minor is behind bars after he was charged for the murder of 25-year-old Reniery Adalid Figueroa Garcia. The San Pedro businessman was fatally shot while he was inside his shop in the San Mateo Area on Thursday night. Two persons reportedly barged into the store and shot Figueroa to the head. The men escaped by running towards the lagoon. ASP Alejandro Cowo says that another person is in police custody.

Investigators are also investigating whether his Figueroa’s murder was drug-related angle since one of the persons detained is associated with one of the drug gangs on the island.
