Three days have gone by since the gruesome murder of forty two year old Daniel Carrillo and tonight Orange Walk police remain unsuccessful in obtaining leads or making arrests in connection to his death. As we reported yesterday, Carrillo was socializing at the home of his relatives on Sunday October 8th and had left the residence at about 1:00 a.m. to purchase at a Chinese store located on Mopan Street, only a stone’s throw from where he had been socializing, when he was killed by a lone gunman. It is reported that the individual rode up to Carrillo from behind and fired a total of nine shots which caught him on the back.
Despite his efforts to run for his life, Carrillo collapsed on the ground. His aggressor then approached him and fired two additional shots at him. Carrillo was transported to the Northern Regional Hospital where he passed away whilst undergoing treatment.
While Carrillo’s killer or killers remain at large, anyone with information regarding the homicide is once again asked to contact the nearest police station.
