…And 2 More in Roaring Creek

Another shooting happened on Sunday evening. Two persons were shot when masked gunmen stormed a home in the Hattieville Area of Roaring Creek Village. The apparent target of the attack was twenty-one old Barrington Moro. As they do most weekends, he and friends were sitting under a tree in the yard listening to music and sipping wine at around five that evening. At least three men allegedly approached from the bushes at the rear of the property, and one of them unleashed a hail of lead at the group.  When it was over Moro was critically injured while a neighbour, Maxine Neal, who just happened to be nearby was shot in the foot. One witness who wished to appear off-camera told News Five what happened.

“I mi deh right inna my yard just deh listen to music and thing with my neighbour deh DJ, and then I heard two gunshot, and I deh run to the direction weh the gunshot deh come from cause I noh sure if da gunshot or not. But then my neighbour halla run, run…then I grab my baby and I gawn stoop down behind the tree deh soh…and I mi see the person run ya soh with wah long blue pants, black shirt, stockings and wah hat and ih midi shoot inna dah direction, I noh sure afta who, but I just stoop down deh and the person mi gawn. I just slide down the tree, gawn da my neighbour cause she deh tell me come to she, and so I gawn da she and afta that the man dey gawn.”

“When we reach down the hill den they halla my neighbour get shot and then they come pickup ah and ker ah inna the vehicle. Then afta that my ma halla dat she get shot too, and we neva even mi know she get shot pon fu she foot too.”



“Now I know you all talk about it among yourselves after it happened…what do you all think happened? Who did they come for?”


Voice of: Neighbour

“We noh sure…they mussy just shot wrong man. They mussy tek he fu somebody else or something. We noh know. Because we noh expect dat fu happen big day.”


Barrington Moro received injuries to his left thigh and abdomen and was transferred to the K.H.M.H. for treatment. Belmopan Police have three persons detained for questioning, and are exploring several angles to find a motive for the crime.
