Sunday, March 6, 2016

A handyman was shot to death while doing work at Copper Bar, in Quare Road, Valencia, yesterday when gunmen stormed the bar allegedly in search of the owner.

According to police reports, Steven “Sick” Villaroel, 48, from KP lands, Valencia, was killed when three gunmen entered the bar around 1 pm yesterday.

He was shot multiple times about the body. 

An employee of the establishment said Villaroel, who was a one-handed amputee with an injured leg, was up a ladder welding a frame and couldn’t run when the gunmen burst in. 

Meanwhile, Seon Edwards was gunned down while liming close to the same bar on February 26. A white Tiida pulled up and gunmen opened fire on Edwards who died on the scene.

Isha Phill, Akeem Durity and Ometa Lezama were hospitalised with gunshot injuries while liming at Copper Bar in Valencia on January 22 when a man entered the premises and started shooting randomly.
