By Breaking Belize News Staff: Police are seeking three men in connection with a robbery on Friday, in which a delivery truck driver was shot.

Just after 5:30 p.m. the truck belonging to Grace Kennedy Belize was around Mile 12 on the George Price Highway when it came under gunfire. Reports are that a man exited the passenger side of a white car parked on the highway and opened fire on the truck. The truck’s driver, Eliss Arkliss, crashed into a ditch and the attacker ran up to the truck and shot him. The two side men traveling with Arkliss left the vehicle and ran into the nearby bushes to escape the incident unharmed.

The attacker then stole a black knapsack from inside the truck before heading back to the waiting car. A quick police response led them to the vehicle, but the three men inside jumped out and escaped.

The officers managed to recover the stolen knapsack. Arkliss remains hospitalized due to a gunshot injury, while investigations into the incident continue.
