Screen_Shot_2017-08-28_at_8.22.23_PMOfficial information tonight is that the incident which transpired on Tuesday August 8th in the village of Yo Creek where thirty year old Dwayne Almendarez was shot by a customs official and subsequently lost his life, will be treated as a criminal matter by authorities.


Viewers may remember that the incident played out as Customs supported by BDF officials conducted a search on a passenger bus where they attempted to confiscate illegal goods from passengers on board. An altercation reportedly ensued between officials and a group of individuals including Almendarez, during which he physically attacked one of the custom officers, who reportedly fired a warning shot in the air. Almendarez allegedly did not cease his attack and the officer fearing for his life fired the shots which wounded Almendarez.


Almendarez as you may remember received three shots, one to the thigh, one to the left chest and one to the abdomen. He succumbed to his injuries at the KHMH four days after the incident due to complications from his injuries.

Information is that the officer believed to have wounded Almendarez was transferred for safety reasons and Orange Walk Police has since had to conduct meet and greet sessions in Yo creek to quell tensions following that incident. We will continue to follow this situation and keep you updated.
