One person charged for killing man in front of family

While crime might have been slow this week, it does not negate the weeks where crime, and especially murders, are rampant. The police were also asked for updates in any of the recent murders but there was not much to say about those either. In fact, the only other update the media was given was in relation to the murder of 35-year-old, Nelson Flores, which occurred on Sunday night. Flores was killed in front of his wife and children after gunmen were able to access his home. One person has been arrested for his murder.
ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Reference the shooting death of Nelson Flores which had occurred in Santa Elena Town on Sunday last, police have since arrested and charged Jorge Galindo, a 33-year-old resident of Santa Elena Town for the crime of murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault caused upon the other victims at the time the incident had occurred. So far I will not go into details other than to say that they were both familiar with each other and the accused is familiar with the family.”
Flores’ 12-year-old daughter who was also injured during the incident is in a stable condition. Police currently have no motive for this murder.
