By Aaron Humes: Police have confirmed the death of Terrence Rhaburn, 30, of Vernon Street, who was shot dead while at his workplace, the newly-opened St. Martin’s One Stop Auto Care Shop on Partridge Street Extension, around six Saturday evening.
Four others are hospitalized, two in critical condition.
In a statement, the U.S. Embassy Belmopan reported that it “is aware of the tragic shooting incident [Saturday] evening in St. Martins de Porres in Belize City. We remain committed to supporting our Belizean partners to ensure safe and secure communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
The Embassy, along with LOVE Foundation and Kolbe Foundation, is a primary sponsor of the Empowering Communities to Empower Themselves Project which set up the auto shop business.
According to police, at 6:05 pm a white Sport Utility type vehicle stopped in front of the shop and someone from within the vehicle fired shots injuring the group who were all at the Hub working.
Keith Stuart and Jermaine Garnett are listed in stable condition, while Albert Clother and Jamaal Jackson are listed in critical condition.
Clother was interviewed at the opening of the shop earlier this week where he spoke of a new opportunity for those trying to turn their lives around.
But this is the latest shooting to rock the area following the death of Augustine Coc on Thursday night after he was ambushed coming home from work. It is also the fourth murder in the City in less than a week after two were reported on Monday last – Keith Courtenay Jr and Micah Baltazar.
