Police say older men were gang’s targets in Hydes’ Lane shooting

Posted: Monday, June 24, 2024. 9:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The two men who were shot in Belize City during the early hours of Sunday morning – 53-year-old Jeffrey Smith and 52-year-old Earl Parks – were apparently the target of unknown gang elements, according to Police.

Smith and Parks were riding their bicycles with a third companion on Hydes Lane when several shots were fired in their direction. Each was injured and rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

ACP Hilberto Romero, Regional Commander, Eastern Division this afternoon said the victims “are now in a stable condition. We are seeking several suspects in regard to this shooting.”

While police are following up on several leads, it appears gang action may have been the primary motivation, and in response to our question whether there was any indication if these two were the persons that these gang members wanted, Romero said, “Well, they were the only ones in the area at the time when they were targeted.”

Investigations continue.
