By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

Well-known Roaring Creek resident, Russell Hyde Sr., whose common-law wife was shot and killed in a vehicle he was driving on the George Price Highway in May, was shot and killed on Friday night.

Hyde was reportedly heading to his farm in Camalote Village, Cayo along with Marcy Humes when a group of gunmen ambushed them and opened fire on them.

Hyde was hit several times, died at the scene. He had been targeted numerous times and had also been accused of a number of offences.

Police have no suspects in connection with these latest killings.

Several members of his family were killed in 2015 alone, and earlier this month, his nephew Brian Hyde, was arrested and charged in Florida for e triple murder of his aunt, her daughter and son-in-law.

The Reporter will have more information on the double murder as it becomes available.
