Police have one detained for the murder of Jason Sutherland

Police have been able to make an arrest concerning the murder of Jason Sutherland which took place in May.  Sutherland came under fire while in his yard and was hit several times.  Sutherland was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. Today, police provided the media with an update.

ASP Alejandro Cowo – Head of CIB:And we have another arrest, reference the shooting death of Jason Travis Sutherland which occurred on the third of May 2018. Yesterday police arrested and charged a male person by the name of Beres Ventura, a Belizean laborer of Hopkins Village for the crime of murder. He was detained in San Pedro during an operation that was being conducted by San Pedro Police. He had already been in police custody but during their investigation we were unable to unfold more evidence hence the reason that he was charged.”

Sutherland is the second sibling to lose his life to gun violence.
