Jorge Estrada murdered in Belize City

Another shooting took place in the old capital on Saturday night. Thirty-one year old Jorge Estrada was shot three times to the head and has survived so far. But he remains hospitalized in a critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Estrada was rushed to the KHMH by BERT ambulance after he was discovered with the gunshot wounds and bleeding profusely from the head shortly before nine-thirty p.m. at the corner of George and King Streets.

“A Hispanic male was found with three shots to the head. He was later identified as Jorge Estrada, a Belizean bartender of a Belize City Address. We know that Mr. Estrada is in a very critical condition and is clinging on to his life right now at the KHMH. This shooting, the people in that area are saying that they didn’t hear any shots leaving us to believe that Mr. Estrada was shot somewhere else and dumped at the corner of King and George.”

Estrada succumbed to his injuries late this afternoon. Police have no suspects in this incident.

    Give the killer a fair and impartial conviction, then HANG HIM HIGH!

    Let’s see if the police and DPP can do their jobs successfully.

  4. Concern citizen says:

    You guys fail to realize under who’s watch all this killing started. It was’nt this pm, why keep blaming this gov. just like the US, keep blaming the black man, when it was the whites in the US, and the hispanic government in belize that started all the corruption and crime and expect the black man to clean it up. Wake up black people stop trusting these pale skin people. Their job is to keep black people down and poor.

  5. John Boy,Carson,Ca says:

    Concern citizen stop the blame game.Pale skin people is not killing Belizeans.Belizeans are killing Belizeans.We are all Belizeans.Pale or dark.Mr Barrow said he could do a better job than Mr Musa.We gave him the oppertunity to do it.I am a black man,but I see myself as a human first.

  6. What? says:

    Concern Citizen , are you saying that we should blame the previous government for this current government lack of action. Are you telling me and anyone who read this that the PM has a excuse for not doing anything when the solution to crime is nothing hard seeing its just a small group people causing this crime.

    You sir are real ignorant and keep on thinking that way people like you will make Belize go in a backwards direction.

  7. Storm says:

    I’m disappointed that Concern Citizen is so angry about what colour a man’s skin is. I believe we are all God’s children, and made in His image. Don’t you? We all bleed the same red blood.

    CC, I hope you can open your eyes and heart and look at people based on what they do, instead of how they look. Belize should be a melting pot where we all are equal.

  8. Rod says:

    You are a big ignoramus concerned citizen you betta change you name to ignoramus citizen it’s because of people like you that Belize is in the state it’s in please take you friend barrow and go live tha states where you belong. Damm idiot.

  9. Elgin Martinez says:

    Dean Barrow has a responsibility to the Belizean people and that is to protect them from both foreign and domestic enemies.And as far as i am concerned he havn’t done anything to combat crime but request that the Belizean people remove their tints off their vehicle.

  10. Concern citizen says:

    To John Boy from Carson, Ca: Would you be able to clean up years of corruption in Belize, in the time the pm has been in office? If you can then you should go an run for office in Belize, and if you read your news, it’s a good thing you live in Carson, don’t go to Azusa Ca. the Mexicans don’t want anything black in that area, read your news.

    To What: The same goes for you if you can clean up all the year of corruption in two years take the job. When Maltus call the pm racist a couple of comments ago I did not hear any comments for any of you, see how onesided you all are.

    To Storm: I agree with you about we are all one but, when Marltus call the pm a racist against the hispanics as I said before, I did not see a comment on that, what’s up with that he started the racist comment I was just replying.

    Rod as for you: I’ve been reading your comments, you don’t like anything the pm is doing. I guess your gravey train ran out when he was elected. I might an idiot but, you are an opportunist, who sells his soul for you own greed.
