Jason “Soup” Williams Shot Again

Jason “Soup” Williams

One hour and a half after the shooting of Willoughby, shots rang out once again…this time on Fairweather Street on South Side Belize City. Just after nine p.m., an attempt was made on the life of notorious street figure thirty-six year old Jason Williams, just a stone’s throw away from where he lives on Supal Street. Williams, who is out on bail, was hanging out with friends, when he was targeted. Also known as Soup, Williams who is the Head of the Supal Street Gang, was shot to the right leg and the right hand. His assailant then fled in the direction of Dolphin Street. A total six expended shells were recovered from the scene. Williams was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is admitted in a stable condition. Police cannot confirm if it is gang related, but are following all leads.

“Jason Williams, thirty-six years with gunshot wound to the leg and a gunshot wound to the arm. He was admitted to the K.H.M.H. in a stable condition. The information is that he was sitting down at an area on Fairweather Street across the bridge when a male person approached and fired several shots in his direction causing the injuries to him.”
