The family of 35-year-old Nelson Flores, a resident of Santa Elena Town in the Cayo District, is currently in distress after witnessing his cold-blooded killing. Flores was shot in front of his wife and children, and his daughter was injured in the attack.
?The incident happened at around 9 p.m. on Sunday, August, 25th in a residential area of the town that isn’t known for this type of gun violence. According to police, Flores, a father of 6, was in his living room. His wife and several of his children were at home when a man wearing black clothing and a motorcycle helmet entered their house through the backdoor. That man started inquiring about Flores.
?The family realized the danger immediately, and Flores’ 14-year-old son confronted the would-be killer. They reportedly got into a struggle, but the assailant managed to free himself of the teenager, and he immediately went after Flores, who was sitting on a chair. He fired several shots, which injured Flores and his 12-year-old daughter, and immediately after injuring both, the gunman fled the family’s home.
?His traumatized wife, Alma Flores, spoke with the press, and briefly described the attack on her family.
?She said, “There was a guy who ran into the house and started to shoot, but afterward when I looked, it was my husband that he shot on the chair. I was in the kitchen and after that, he shot him in the head. He shot him in the temple. I guess he fired about seven shots and he shot my daughter too.”
?Flores and his daughter were both rushed to the San Ignacio Community Hospital, where the on-duty medical professionals attempted to treat their injuries. Unfortunately, Flores passed away several hours later, despite the best efforts of the hospital’s medical staff. They were, however, able to successfully treat his 12-year-old daughter for her injuries, and she is currently hospitalized in a stable condition.
?It is unclear why the shooter barged into the Flores family to execute Nelson Flores. Several reports are that Flores was involved with the sale of marijuana. Police have indicated they had reasons to search his home multiple times in the past, and at the time of his murder, he was still facing a drug-related charge. Also, while the cops were processing the scene after he was executed in his home, they came across several quantities of marijuana, which suggests drug trafficking.
?His wife, Alma Flores, described him as a devoted father.
?She told the press, “He wasn’t anyone that troubled anyone. He was a family man they didn’t need to do that to him, to do that to his daughter.”
