Youth detained in drive-by shooting

That initiative cannot get underway too soon as Belizean youths continue to attack each other on a daily basis. This morning in Belize City a driveby shooting left one man injured and another detained pending charges. James Swan Junior is in police custody after he was identified by shooting victim Alfred Conorquie as the man who pulled the trigger. According to eighteen year old Conorquie, who lives on Vernon Street, he was a passenger in a car driving around 1:00 this morning when another vehicle intercepted them on Elston Kerr Street. He recognised the driver as Ernesto Williams and Swan as the passenger. Conorquie told police that he saw Swan point a small handgun out the window and fire several shots, one of which caught him in the right hand. Police are also looking for Williams.
