What really happened during murder of Hogbone at the Fish Market?

Avondale “Hogbone” Fuller

In our newscast on Tuesday night, we reported on the late afternoon murder of Avondale “Hogbone” Fuller who was ambushed at the Conch Shell Fish market.  The homicide has the Gang Suppression Unit on high alert as Hogbone, is a reputed affiliate of the George Street gang and retaliation can be expected.  One person, with a long rap sheet, was quickly detained but up to news time, he has not been taken to court for arraignment. News Five’s Isani Cayetano went back to the crime scene today and files this report.

Twenty-nine year old Avondale Fuller, a resident of Belize City was executed gangland style shortly after four o’clock on Tuesday evening along Ebony Street in the Conch Shell Bay area.  The George Street capo had been out with his family shopping at a nearby fish market when he was assailed by two gunmen who let loose a shower of bullets inside the maroon Isuzu Trooper he was driving.  The spray of gunfire sent both vendors and customers scrambling for cover as Fuller, commonly known as Hogbone, was being executed in broad daylight.  A bystander who was in the area at the time of the incident spoke with News Five off camera.

“Look like he mi come buy fish and he and his girlfriend were outside already buying the fish. So he was inside the vehicle and it look like it was two young man they just came up on him and just fire shot. First they start to shoot the front of the windshield. Then the next one tell him go dah back and he gone dah back and he just start di let go di rest ah shots dehn. When the shots done fire and I ran outside and I look, I see he like he di gasp fi air—he di catch fi he last breath before they ker he to the hospital.”

According to police press officer Fitzroy Yearwood, Fuller died shortly after being rushed to the hospital.

“I know that Mister Fuller was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to the injuries. He received multiple gunshots to the body. I know we have investigators presently on the scene canvassing the area and we are hoping—this is a broad daylight killing—we are hoping that we have witnesses that may come forward and assist us in this yet another murder investigation.”

Another bystander who was also present during the shooting informed us that a child was also injured during the incident.

“I didn’t see but the screaming that the baby was screaming, I know that something was happening to him because the vehicle, I just hear something banging on my shot and the banging it was nothing nice. But the banging on my shop makes me know that something more than I expect was happening out there. People was screaming, I thought that someone got knocked or get hit with vehicle and thing like that.”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“It wasn’t a chase. From what we understand so far is that when Fuller was killed, a vehicle end up slamming into another vehicle that end up slamming into a lamppost. Like I said, it’s too early to comment on all that so let’s just take this investigation one step at a time.”

    This is why the killing in Belize is never going to stop, its going to always be revenge killings. I hate to say it, but it is going to be a lot of senseless killings behind this shit. As we speak leaders of George ST is pushing a gun in a young jobless youth hand with no common sense, because he dropped out of school at a early age to hangout, and smoke weed and be a follower. Because that’s all a gangbanger is, a follower with no sense of direction. Belize is in a bad state, with corrupted officers and thieving politicians. P.U.P will do no better, let us not forget they stole the most money from the Belize people in our history. Belize needs a whole clean up on everything. The opposition is just waiting to get in to rob the people of the little we own. I wish the British Government can take back over, because I miss walking from Yarba to Memorial park without the fear of gun shot. We can’t even enjoy Belize and it’s nice sea breeze. Because of all this !@#$%^&, we need the British Government in our lives in Belize, so we the people can be proud Belizeans again

    Another one bite d dust…

    Someone either knew he would be there or they saw him, had their weapons on them & saw their opportunity to take revenge. Maybe the child was screaming because he/she was traumatized like everyone else. Many of us have complained about the psychological impact this is having on our children & are just grateful when innocent people aren’t physically injured.

    THIS should not happen ON THE PUBLIC SQUARE………it SHOWS NO REGARD FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. It’s like living in Afghanistan or Iraq…………….

    THEY NEED TO CALL A TRUCE……. LIKE WHEN BARROW FIRST TOOK OFFICE……………………. .and they summoned him to the meeting.


    There is HOPE and WITH GOD……………………….. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

    Another on bites the dust okay. So now what we as Belizeans are doing about it stop blaming the Politicans they are not giving out guns that is pure ignorance. Mothers and fathers know what your children are doing. Too much TV and not enough reality don’t you see the drains are filling up with our blood please have some pride in ourselves we no longer want to work for a living but we are willing to wait and steal someone elses lively hood corporal punishment needs to be returned. God is watching and when the plague hits us the devil will be waiting.

  25. RIP AVONDALE says:

    BONE is good guy if you get to know him, we only see and hear the bad. If you known the man, you wouldve found out that he was a human being just like us. Yes maybe he is a bad guy to yall but he had a personality that was kind and generous. All of us have our bad deeds we have done in the past so judge not. Oh i forgot to tell you anybody who he problems with, brought that on themselves! Trust me he, he spared my life. So is he really a monster? like the the namecallers say. Condolences to the family and wife.

  26. Buddy says:

    Avon Sr. may have done some bad things but he without sin cast the first stone. we are quick to judge the other with looking in the mirror. Avon again a new family who he truly love, he had change his and that is why he wasnt holding the gun…. I am happy it end up this way because the killing took his sins now he have all that burden to carry with him until his turn come…. and that will be sooner than he think. Avon had his 2yrs old son in that vehicle but God protect that child only a little graze he got…. people paint bad image of avon by mere gossip and until people reach in his position then they will be able to speak. Avon is resting sayin bad things about him wont change the past, present or future. RIP Avon Fuller
