By Aaron Humes: There was an officer-involved shooting over the weekend along the northern border after a Corozal villager was allegedly caught trying to flee authorities with contraband goods.

According to police, 32-year-old Elmer Keme of Chan Chen, Corozal District, was driving a green Ford pick-up truck in the Santa Rosa area of Corozal when he eluded police and tried to run down one of the officers who was doing a checkpoint.

ACP Hilberto Romero, OC Eastern Division gave more details: “…thereafter shots were fired and the vehicle came to a stop and Keme was observed with a gunshot injury and was taken for treatment and inside the vehicle police found several items of uncustomed goods.”

Keme sustained gunshot injuries to the head. He has since been moved to Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico, and may have to go to Playa Del Carmen to determine if doctors will remove the bullet that is still lodged in his body.

Since the incident, Keme’s family has made several pleas on Facebook requesting financial assistance for his medical bills.
