By BBN Staff: A police officer received gunshot injuries this morning when he and other officers responded to a robbery at Belcove Hotel in Belize City.
Several men attempted to rob the hotel but they were unsuccessful so they managed to escape which resulted in a shootout between them and the police.
An officer sustained gunshot injuries during the process and was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for medical treatment. Unfortunately, the officer passed away while undergoing surgery.
A suspect was also shot in the process and is in the hospital receiving treatment.
