Police are still investigating the murder of 61 year old Baltazar Sarmeinto. The incident happened earlier this week on the 9th of December when Sarmeinto’s body was found lying in a pool of blood with a gunshot wound to his head, at the Buca Shell Gas station on the Phillip Goldson Highway. Reports are that around 12:15am Baltazar was on duty at the Gas Station, when 2 male persons of dark complexion entered the compound from the river by means of a boat. After reaching on land, they hopped in a pickup truck and headed toward the convenience store on the compound. Sarmiento then started to head in their direction. He then opened the door of the vehicle, and that is when one of the men pulled out a handgun and shot him where he died on the spot. ACP Joseph Myvette gave us an update on the investigation.
That investigation remains ongoing… no but the police continues to work on that. I believe that the suspects could not be clearly identified from the surveillancefootage so the Police continue to do their investigation.
We will keep you updated on this story.
