Marlon "Fidgit Bird" Jones

The second murder for the weekend in the Old Capital occurred on Saturday morning.  A Cayo youth, twenty-three year old Marlon Jones, was gunned down in the Port Loyola area. Jones, who is from Georgeville, was hanging out with a friend when he was approached by two men. Minutes later he was dead. News Five’s Jose Sanchez has the details of Saturday morning’s murder.

Marlon Jones also known as ‘Fidgit Bird’ and also as ‘Jack’ was gunned down on Saturday morning in Belize City. Minutes before his death, Bird was inside Christine Baizar’s yard.

“He was hanging out in my yard. He was fixing a bike. Two guys came up and hailed for him and he came out. He went up that way. I wasn’t sure where he went, but like fifteen minutes after I heard a scream and bang. I was right behind this fence hanging out my clothes because I was washing that day. When I looked I saw the person running. That when I ran out here and called 911. I saw him lying down there, face down with the blood pouring out.  The person from 911 told me to wait on the line until the police got here. They responded quickly. When they got there they said that nobody could move the body because we have to wait for BERT to get here.”

The cops have detained suspects for Fidgit Bird’s murder.

Sergeant Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“Police visited a scene sometime after eight on Saturday. This is at the junction of Malcolm Street, Louise Bevans and Jane Usher Boulevard, where they saw Marlon Jones suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the back. He was transported to the K.H.M.H. where he succumbed to his injury sometime around nine-thirty a.m. Initial investigation has revealed that Jones was outside having a conversation with two men on the side of the street when a third man on bicycle rode up, fired a single shot apparently from a shotgun and  caused Jones injury. We have persons detained.”

Christine Baizar

“He lives somewhere behind there, through that alley—I’m not sure where, but he lives somewhere back there. He’s actually from Georgeville and he comes and goes. So he doesn’t stay here all the time.”

Jose Sanchez

“Obviously he had some sort of enemies. Did he have any arguments. What do you know of him other than that?”

Christine Baizar

“Well the morning when I saw him, he didn’t appear any different than when I usually see him. He owed me four dollars; he came and he paid me that. He left as I said. But that’s all I know about him.”

But the police know a lot more about Jones. According to records, he has been detained before for robbery. Reporting for News Five, Jose Sanchez.

    Another day at the zoo & the animals are still in charge. Old beef? New beef? Imaginary beef? Real bullets with no end to the bloodshed in sight….Where are the cameras the BPD posted in certain areas to help combat crime?

    Its about time the animal hits the dust… he’s responsible for too many people that are dead and he has never been caught… ALBERT ALLEN you will now meet the man who actually killed you not LEWIS and FLORES/FLOWERS who’s serving time

    Because of the negativity like “bzeangel” has, crime will never end in the country. I don’t think its right for you to say that about the young man. Whatever he did in his life, we are not God to judge others and it sounds like you knew who killed “Albert Allen”, so why didn’t you say something about it? Why now?
    I wonder if you would rejoice if this was any of your family member. I’m not taking sides but you shouldn’t be happy about tragedies like these. HUMANS are not PERFECT, and he is not an ANIMAL!

    Thank You.
