Police Investigate Bus Incident

As we’ve told you, there is some confusion coming out of the crowded bus, and Police are being kept busy finding out exactly what happened. Several persons have allegedly claimed that there was a weapon with what looked like a silencer attached. That would account for the lack of noise. The badly bleeding Thomas was rushed in an unconscious state to the San Ignacio Hospital. Comments just after the incident from persons who were on the bus are on indication of the chaos and confusion which is complicating the investigation at this time.

Voice of: Commuter

“Nobody recognize him. They saw the person, but they don’t know who was the guy. So he just jumped from the bus and run into t e bush. So we never see. We never recognize who he was. I see him jump in the bus at terminal in Cayo, but I don’t know how he reached here. And when the bus stop, he jumped through the back, straight to the man and shot the man or I think knock the man with the gun.”


According to Reyes investigators are at the San Ignacio Hospital waiting for Thomas to be released, and also for doctors to confirm the cause of the injury to his head.
