By BBN Staff: Yesterday, Nyrere Parchue, 23, was discharged from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) after being shot to the head on Friday, June 13, 2018.
BBN previously reported, that police had arrived on the scene on Saint Joseph Street in Belize City, shortly after 4:40 p.m., where Parchue had reportedly been shot after setting chase to an armed assailant who had recently just held him at gunpoint and robbed him of his folder.
Parchue who is an employee of Pitts Law Firm, had just picked up a delivery from Vital Statistics Office and was riding back to work when he was approached by a male person while traveling on Freetown Road.
The assailant then held him at gunpoint and demanded that he hand over his folder.
As a result, Parchue relinquished the parcel, but soon after the assailant made his escape towards the vicinity of the Flag monument near Pallotti High School, he decided to follow him.
Unfortunately, it was not until they were around the BAHA area on St. Joseph Street that the robber turned around and fired a single shot injuring him to the head.
Police investigation continues.
