By BBN Staff:He was awoken from his sleep and shot multiple times but Merkel Lambey is alive and recovering.
Sometime after midnight this morning, the 50-year-old security guard was sleeping on the couch of his home on Curl Thompson Street in Belize City when an unknown visitor knocked on the door of his home.
Lambey got up and opened the door to a hail of gunfire. As much as five shots were counted by neighbors.
He was thereafter rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) where he remains in a stable condition.
In recent times Curl Thompson Street would appear to be the epicenter of violence in the Jane Usher Boulevard community.
We note that last year there were several murders reported in that area which includes that of Justin “Ethan” Hyde and Gilroy “Fries” Martinez.
