Murdered by blunt object to the head

It was a violent weekend in the Jewel; one man was murdered while five others were injured in Belize City and Belmopan. The madness started as early as Friday afternoon, when at least nine bullets were fired at Jeffrey Flowers while he stood on Amara Avenue. He was hit on the chest, back, buttocks, abdomen and both arms. Flowers remains in a critical condition and police have formally arrested and charged twenty-eight year old Jason Joseph with Attempted Murder, Dangerous Harm and use of Deadly Means of Harm. Later that night, thirty-nine year old Kevin Middleton suffered severe head injuries when he was ambushed from behind and beaten on the head with a blunt object. Middleton spent the weekend undergoing treatment at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, but he passed away early this morning. Leads have been hard to come by and the Police Press Officer, Sergeant Fitzroy Yearwood, told News Five what their investigations have uncovered so far.

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“Police received a report that Kevin Middleton was hit somewhere to the back of the head while he was sitting on his bicycle on Barrack Road in the vicinity of Guardian Life Insurance Building. He was approached from behind by a lone person who hit him with an unidentified object. He was transported to the KHMH where he was receiving treatment for his injuries this morning around one a.m.”
