Man Clings to Life after Near Fatal Shooting on Lovely Lane

Alejandro Cowo

A Belizean Chinese national is tonight clinging to life at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital following a shooting on Lovely Lane after the citizen’s parade on Monday. It is believed that the gun violence was motivated by gang warfare on north side Belize City. Police say thirty-five-year-old Jing Wu was not the intended target, but the gunman was aiming at his sideman, Rogelio Selgado who escaped unharmed.

“On Monday the tenth, just after the conclusion of the citizen’s parade, police reported to a shooting incident on Lovely Lane where upon arrival they were informed that a victim had been transported to the hospital. The victim name was learnt to be Jing Wu, a thirty-five-year-old Belizean of Mahogany Street. What police has learned so far is that he was doing a delivery at that location and was in the company of another person by the name of Rogelio Selgado when they were alerted that someone came out of a nearby bushy lot and fired several shots in their direction, hitting Mister Wu. He is presently admitted at the hospital in a critical condition. There was no robbery element. According to the information that we have received that the target was the other person who was along with him; who is Mister Selgado.”

“Is it believed that this was a gang situation? I’ve heard that Selgado is from Majestic Alley and you already have your eyes on a shooter who is from a rival area to Majestic Alley right now.”

 

ASP Alejandro Cowo

“Yes that is one of the angles that we are looking at.”

 

One person is currently in detention and police are looking for one other in connection with this shooting.
