By Aaron Humes: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams is to address this morning’s police-involved shooting incident in Belize City this afternoon.

Preliminary information received so far is that a mentally ill man apparently confronted an officer on the Swing Bridge, apparently walking behind him in a manner deemed to be “aggressive.” He was also said to be carrying a knife.

Unable to calm him down after reportedly firing multiple warning shots, officers reportedly had no choice but to open fire – but it is not clear if other means were tried to subdue him before the fatal gunfire took place.

We intend to have further details as soon as they are available.
