By BBN Staff: Over the weekend Belize recorded an onslaught as five persons lost their lives in four gruesome and separate incidents.
The first occurred in Dangriga, Stann Creek at around 6 o’clock on Friday night.
Glenford Bermudez was at his place of business in the Wagierale area when two men rode up to him and one opened fire.
At around 10 o’clock on Friday night, Belize City recorded the second murder.
Businessman, Ernesto Williams, was shot dead in stunning fashion in downtown Belize City.
He had just exited a home in Taylor’s Alley when he met his demise.
The third person to die over the weekend was Brian Harris, 37.
He passed away on Sunday while receiving medical attention at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
Readers will recall that back in December he was shot multiple times and left for dead in Hattieville but was found hours later still alive.
Sunday recorded yet another fatality but this time in Punta Gorda, Toledo.
Denroy Nicholas, 23, was shot multiple times as he exited his mother’s house.
And finally, early this morning Ronald “Boom Boom” Michael was gunned down.
He had reportedly gone to chop a yard on Ordonez Avenue in Belize City.
That was when someone took aim at him and cut short his life.
With these five deaths from gun violence, Belize has unofficially recorded 9 murders in 2020 so far.
