Egbert Emmanuel Baldwin was the victim of a fatal shooting incident which took place after 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 18, 2020. For this crime, two men have been arrested, charged, and remanded to the Belize Central Prison. Camryn Lozano and Albert Gill, both 19-year-old residents of Ladyville, were arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, July 23 for the crime of murder.
Lozano, an aero dispatch ramp agent of Marage Road, and Gill, a labourer of Jackson Avenue, appeared before Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson. Given the nature of the offense, no plea was taken and they were remanded to the central prison until September 23.
Police responded to a shooting incident on Egbert Quilter Avenue in Ladyville where they met Baldwin, a resident of the village, with gunshot wounds to the body. Investigations revealed that earlier that night, Baldwin was riding a bicycle from a friend’s house when on Jackson Avenue, two men approached him and fired several shots in his direction. This caused the fatal injuries to Baldwin as well as the one gunshot injury which 44-year-old Ronald Cole suffered. Baldwin was transported to the KHMH but succumbed to his injuries. Police say that he gave a dying statement as to who his murderers were.
Just three days prior to his murder, Baldwin had been acquitted from a charge of attempted murder. Baldwin and Darwin Prado were freed of three counts of attempted murder upon Terrence Flowers Junior, Casey Lozano, brother of Camryn Lozano, and Lyndon Gillett for a shooting that occurred in a yard on Compassion Lane in Ladyville on the night of May 13, 2016.
