Luis Dominguez is Shot on J.R. Street

Luis Dominguez

A Belize City resident was shot on Thursday night in Belize City. Thirty two year old Luis Dominguez was riding his bike on JR Street shortly before eight last night when a man came out of a yard and fired several shots at him. Dominguez, we understand, was hit twice, once to the neck area and once to the face. Police have since detained one person in connection with this incident. Today we spoke with person who wished to appear off camera. She told us that Dominguez had just left her yard and a few minutes later he ran back to her house bleeding saying that he had been shot:


Voice of: Resident

Everybody mi deh eena di house when the shooting happened. All I hear dah bout two gunshot the most and by the time I her the two gunshot, I di look fi pull up the door and see the young man because he mi done come eena my yard already and he di look fi come up my step.

“Well, yeah. He know who shot he. He say he know who shot ah but probably he tell police dah who.”


Andrea Polanco

”Did he say if he was being followed or anything? Was he on bike? Was he walking?”
