Wednesday, January 29, 2015. BMG: Twenty five year old Emmanuel Willoughby’s run for freedom from prison ended in a hail of gunfire last night in Belize City.
Police say they intercepted Willoughby around seven thirty last night on Arlington Drive during routine operations.
Superintendent Hilberto Romero today gave reporters the details of the capture of Willoughby saying that when officers intercepted the escaped prisoner, he had an object in his hand resembling a firearm.
Police say Willoughby was ordered to surrender but he refused.
As a result, he was fired upon and received injuries to the right arm and leg.
Willoughby was taken to the hospital for treatment and admitted to ward in stable condition.
He remains under police guard and faces multiple charges in San Ignacio where he is accused of armed robbery and aggravated burglary.
Willoughby escaped from the Belize Central Prison late last year.
