y BBN Staff:On Friday, just before midnight, police responded to a shooting incident at Pier One night club.

When they arrived, the victim, Asher Saunders, had already been rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) with a gunshot wound to the back of his head.

Police investigations revealed that the victim was socializing at the bar when a dispute occurred.

While police were intervening, someone fired a shot which killed Saunders.

Police say that he was the intended target.

While it is suggested that the incident was a retaliation for the murder of Arthur “Tazzy” Flores, police could not confirm.

According to Assistant Superintendent of Police, Alejandro Cowo, police are not able to confirm that speculation at this time.

When asked how a gun entered the premises, Cowo could not confirm.

Police have since detained the suspect but had to release him because although the incident was caught on camera, the quality of the footage is unclear.

When asked about the increase in violence at Pier One, Cowo indicated that the Belize Police Department does not issue liquor licenses to have this establishment and others like it opening.
