9 year old Boy and a Fisherman Shot In Belize City

In Belize City, nine year student, Davian Sanchez, and fifty-six year old fisherman, Charles Guy, were shot while they were in front of Zen’s Shop on Faber’s Road. Guy is said to be a regular in front of the shop and the minor was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s alleged that a man drove up across the street from the shop and fired several shots in the direction of persons converged in front of the store shortly after seven on Sunday night. Police in the immediate area reportedly set chase after a red car. The driver, a sixteen year old, was apprehended, but no weapon was discovered in the vehicle. Police say they don’t have a motive at this time, but they have the minor in custody.

 

Supt. Hilberto Romero, O.C., CIB, Eastern Division

“Police visited Faber’s Road area where a report was received that there was a shooting and several expended shells were recovered. Police made checks at the Karl Huesner Hospital where they found two male persons. One with a gunshot wound to the leg and one with a gunshot wound to the lower part of the right foot. One person is in custody for this shooting and an investigation continues. Again, we do not have a motive. These persons were at the Chinese story when a person just came and open fire in the general area. There are some marks on the wall where the shots also hit and these two persons received the gun shot.”

“Can you confirm if any of these persons were the intended target?”

 

Supt. Hilberto Romero, O.C., CIB, Eastern Division

“We have not established who the target was because this is a minor and then a fifty-six year old man.”

 

Reporter

“So, I understand that the police pursued a red car after the shooting and they found a sixteen year old minor driving a red car. Is that the main suspect at this time?”

 

Supt. Hilberto Romero, O.C., CIB, Eastern Division

“Well, again, the investigation continues and we have one person in custody. Again, based on the investigation it will be determined if he will be charged but what we do know is that he is in custody at this time.”

 

Reporter

“Was any firearm found?”

 

Supt. Hilberto Romero, O.C., CIB, Eastern Division

“No firearm was found.”

 

Both Sanchez and Guy are receiving treatment at the K.H.M.H.
