Belize City shooting leaves one dead; Investigation underway

Posted: Friday, October 20, 2023. 5:47 am CST.

By Horace Palacio: A seemingly targeted shooting on Rasta Street in Belize City has left a 42-year-old man dead, police authorities confirmed.

At approximately 8:05 p.m. on Thursday, the Crimes Investigation Branch (CIB) Precinct#2 was alerted to a reported shooting incident on Rasta Street. Upon arrival, officers found the lifeless body of a man, later identified as Trenton Kareem Webster, an unemployed Belizean from North Creek, Belize City. Webster was found with multiple gunshot wounds, lying in a pool of blood.

Eyewitness accounts suggest that Webster was waiting on the street for a family friend who had gone to a nearby shop. Without warning, an unidentified man dressed entirely in black approached Webster and fired several rounds at him before fleeing towards North Creek, Belize City.

A Scene of Crime technician processed the crime scene and collected multiple pieces of evidence, including several.9mm LUGAR brand expended shells and a black and white left-footed NIKE slipper.

Webster’s body was transported to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) where he was officially pronounced dead at 10:20 pm by Dr. Gonzales. His remains are currently at the KHMH morgue, awaiting a post-mortem examination.

Authorities are urging anyone with information regarding the incident to come forward. As investigations continue, the motives and identity of the gunman remain unclear.
