Minor charged for shooting taxi driver

ASP Alejandro Cowo

There weren’t any murders in the city over the weekend but there was an attempt on the life of a taxi man. Karl Lamb was shot around four on Saturday morning and Police say that a fifteen-year-old boy did it. Lamb told Police that he was on Gladden Street when a man who looked suspicious walked past him and then turned back shot him in the thigh. Police have since arrested and charged the minor with attempted murder and use of deadly means of harm.

“Police visited the KHMH where they observed a male person by the name of Karl Lamb, thirty-seven-year-old Belizean taxi-driver, with an apparent gunshot wound to the left thigh. What police gathered so far is that Mr Lamb had just arrived at his house and was exiting his vehicle when he was approached by a person who was walking past him on Calvary Lane. The person kept walking and he looked at the person in a suspicious manner and thereafter the person started to walk back to his direction. As a result, he exited his vehicle and walk to his apartment. Upon reaching his apartment, several shots were fired by this male person which caught him to the right thigh. He was admitted to the hospital and then he was later discharged that morning. So far, Police detained several persons in connection with this shooting incident. As a result of the shooting of Mr Karl Lamb, on Sunday Police arrested and charged a minor for the crime of murder and attempt murder. The minor is fifteen years old.”
