By BBN Staff: While it was a bloody weekend in Belize City with two murders and several other violent incidents, Belmopan police also have a murder case on their hands.
Just before 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, police responded to a shooting incident in the Another World area in Roaring Creek Village, where officers observed the motionless body of a male individual who was being transported by family members to the Western Regional Hospital.
Initial investigations revealed that the victim, who was identified as Maleek Norris, was walking on an unnamed street in the area when a lone gunman came out and fired several shots hitting him to the left forearm and left hip.
Police have since detained two persons pending investigation.
