Two people injured in Sunday night shooting incident in Belize City




Sunday, February 15, 2015. BMG: A man and a minor were victims of a shooting incident in Belize City on Sunday night.

The victims, a 9 year old boy and 56 year old Charles Guy, both sustained non-life-threatening injuries to their right leg when a man fired several shots in their direction as the two of them were buying at a grocery store on Fabers Road.

Police responded to reports of the shooting incident around 7 pm on Sunday and when they visited the emergency ward at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, they found Guy and the minor undergoing treatment.

Initial information received say that close to a dozen expended shells were recovered from the scene of the crime.

After the shooting, the gunman reportedly rode off on a bicycle making good his escape on Sanker Street.

We understand that a minor has been detained by authorities as the police investigations continue.
