By Aaron Humes: Police investigations so far suggest that Sunday night’s events on Kraal Road and Hinds Street as well as Neal Pen Road appear to be a murder quickly avenged.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Fitzroy Yearwood, Belize Police Department communications director, told reporters at a police briefing that Matthew Guy, 31, and another person approached Gary Young, 24, while he was socializing in a yard around 8:30 Sunday night and Guy allegedly shot him.
Young tried to flee on bicycle up Neal Pen Road but collapsed and had to be transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. He died there before police could get to him.
As Guy tried to leave, he too was shot by someone in the group, not identified, and was also transported to the hospital, where he died as well.
That leaves police in something of a bind as to the motive for the incident, as both the persons involved are now dead and “dead man carry no tale,” but a decision on whether any charges to be brought will come from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
ASP Yearwood said that had Guy lived, he almost certainly would have faced murder charges. Their investigations continue.
