Former murder suspect, Shamir Medina, murdered near his home

Shamir Medina

The other victim to the weekend’s violence is nineteen year old youth, Shamir Medina. He was gunned down just before Devon Reynolds at eight-thirty on Friday night. Shamir Medina, who is known on the streets as “LEE TULU” and as “WANKA,” was shot and killed near his home on Berkeley Street. Medina’s murder was the first of five shootings in the old Capital over the weekend.

“Our initial investigation reveal that Shamir Medina, a nineteen year old, who was shot in the abdomen and somewhere in the chest area. This occurred on Friday night around eight-thirty. Mister Medina succumbed to his injury on Saturday morning whilst at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The motive we have not established as yet.”

“Now Medina, his name is familiar to police and the courts right?”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“He was before the court recently.”

Jose Sanchez

“And the charge was?”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“Well, I think it was attempt murder. I know he was acquitted for these charges; the charges were withdrawn not acquitted—I must correct myself.  It was for attempted murder and murder in connection with the Glen Williams case from the Belize Chamber of Commerce/Western Union on Regent Street.”

Shamir Medina was initially charged along with Brandon Taylor and Lincoln Hemsley, for the robbery and murder of Glenford Williams.  Taylor is also believed to have been the intended target in the recent murder of his cousin, Andrew Moses.

    Oh well. we reap what we sow.

  6. Justice says:

    Good, justice was served. Charges were dropped more than likely because threats were issued. Well he finally got justice served. He was no use to society and more like him should follow suit.

    Is it only me or is Fitzroy Yearwood pretending to have amnesia in this interview and grasping for words in regards to the criminal history of Shamir Medina? He’s probably a friend of the family !!! Anyways, now Shamir Medina’s mother and family know what Glenford Williams’ family had to endure when he was brutally murdered and his killers walked free from conviction.

    R.I.P. Sham MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR COUNTRY!!!!!

  9. corf says:

    @ RG, I think you meant to say R.I.P Sham and May God have mercy on YOUR soul for the killings that you took part in at the Chambers of commerce office. For the little girl that he punched down while at school and the many other bad things he did to others. How bout that RG?…HAVE MERCY ON YOUR COUNTRY YES BUT HAVE MERCY ON HIS SOUL TOO …don’t get it twisted. He have 3 brothers sitting in jail right now, one (the very notorious Mark Medina) for killing of the Chinese lady at the corner of George St and South st .this is simply a case of bad apples that needs to be discarded.

  10. RG Belizean says:

    @ Corf I know exactly what I am talking about yes I know what he did, and yes I know his brothers, I born and grow up around there, so YOU don’t get it twisted. It’s in God’s hands and not OURS for justice to be serve. He is already dead WHAT THE !@#$ YOU WANT TO DO ABOUT IT…Aren’t you satisfied!!!! Or you want his brothers to come out of jail and cause more Mayhem in our Country!!!!
    MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR COUNTRY!!!!!

  11. corf says:

    @ RG…i’m sure his brothers have theirs coming to them too. Just wait a while and you will be saying have mercy on them too. Its always smart @$$ like you that feel sorry for these thugs.What about the people that the killed huh? Why not say something nice about them? As far as me being satisfied, i will be when they all decide to wipe out themselves and rid Belize of the nonsense. i have no pity for him and his brothers. Such is life when you decide t walk down that road…any yes GOD IS HAVING MERCY ON OUR COUNTRY BY TAKING THEM ALL OUT….PEACE
