By Aaron Humes: Police in Dangriga are hunting a man who shot a fellow resident and gravely injured a woman Police officer, sending her to the hospital where she currently remains on life support.

Constable Lorray Arzu and businessman Lionel Rowland were together in front of an establishment on Bishop Martin Street talking to another man when that individual, a dark-skinned medium-built person dressed ina black 3/4 pants and a brown T-Shirt and bare feet, brandished what appeared to be a nine-millimetre pistol and opened fire, shooting at Rowland six times and also injuring Arzu before fleeing the area. It is unclear whether Arzu was on duty at the time of the incident.

Rowland took himself and Arzu to the Southern Regional Hospital. Both have since been transported to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City where Arzu underwent surgery and remains in critical condition with a suspected brain injury. Rowland was at last report in stable condition.

Police have recovered certain evidence but continue to pursue the suspect as part of their investigations.
