Shooting activity and vehicle collision on Independence night has Corozal police puzzled; one mysterious Lloyd Thompson being sought

By Aaron Humes: There was shooting activity and vehicular collision on Independence night near the seaside in Corozal Town, but according to police, they have yet to establish whether there is even a victim.

The official police report states that police responded to reports of shots being fired on First Avenue just after nine Wednesday night and were told that a dark Toyota 4-Runner vehicle was coming from the direction of the Round House toward Seventh Avenue. When it passed in front of Wood House Restaurant and Bar on First Avenue, someone from inside the vehicle fired three to four shots in the air and the vehicle continued toward the Seventh Avenue roundabout.

Police encountered the 4-Runner with Corozal license plates on the right side of First Avenue, abandoned and damaged. A blue-gray Toyota Corolla, also with Corozal license plates, was also found damaged.

Police subsequently learned that two occupants of the 4-Runner had escaped the area toward Seventh Avenue, leaving it behind.
However, a woman visited the area and told police that one Lloyd Thompson, other particulars unknown, had been shot and was taken to Chetumal, Mexico, for treatment. She refused to cooperate with the police and left, offering no further information.

Police could not find any expended shells or signs of anything other than the apparent collision in the area covered by the accident and there was no video surveillance. The community hospital reported no gunshot injuries (no indication of whether any accident victims came in), and a check with the Immigration authorities found that one Lloyd Thompson came into Belize at the start of September through the northern border and left a few days later, with no sign of him since.

Police are now trying to verify exactly who was the victim of this incident if any, and their investigations continue.
