By Aaron Humes: Tonight, according to CTV-3 News of Orange Walk Town, another victim who was involved in a shootout earlier today has apparently died.
Around 1:30 this afternoon gunfire broke out in the vicinity of the Pueblo Nuevo Ferry which links the Corozal-Progresso-Sarteneja Road between two groups using high-powered weapons.
The cause is unknown but two persons were wounded in the crossfire and were transported to the Northern Medical Plaza in Orange Walk Town, while others managed to get away.
However, the drowning victim who was reportedly with one of the groups tried to swim across the New River and went under, while police reportedly intercepted a vehicle participating in the shootout and detained its driver.
Police investigations are underway.
