Belize District man shot by police after disorderly behaviour

Posted: Monday, April 24, 2023. 7:36 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Police Department is dealing with another case of officer-involved shooting after they were called to subdue a man alleged to be behaving disorderly.

According to police investigations, one Wilford Dawson, 38, of Gardenia Village, Belize District, was allegedly behaving in a disorderly manner in front of a store on Sunday night when a family member called for police assistance.

A team from Sandhill responded and began trying to calm Dawson down; however, he picked up a three-foot-long piece of wooden board and began approaching the Police. One of the officers fired once in the air as a warning; however, Dawson continued, waving the board in a striking motion, and the officers fired at him, injuring him to the right ankle.

Dawson is stable at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Police have recovered multiple pieces of evidence and the investigative team will review body cam footage from the scene; their investigations continue.
