Karl Heusner shot and stable at the KHMH

Karl Heusner

Twenty-six year old Karl Heusner, who bears the namesake of the hospital he was admitted to last night, remains in a stable condition after being shot at his Berkeley Street address on Wednesday.  Heusner, who has appeared before the courts on a number of charges in the past, was hit twice to the chest and back during an assault on his premises.  While Belize City police are yet to crack the case, they have recovered evidence indicating that the shooter fired a minimum of two rounds from a point thirty-eight handgun.  Heusner and his family declined an interview with the media but Public Relations Officer in the Ministry of Police, Rafael Martinez, told News Five this afternoon that the young fisherman is being treated for his injuries.

“Police visited Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital at approximately 9:48 p.m. where they saw Karl Heusner, a twenty-six year old fisherman suffering from what seemed to be an apparent gunshot wound to the left side of his chest and also to the left lower back.  Apparently what happened was that around 9:42 the same night, last night, he was walking around in his yard and apparently several shots were fired from an unknown location, [by] unknown sources which caused his subsequent injuries.  Police has investigated the incident and so far they have recovered two expended .38 shells as well as they are looking around to get some tangible lead to find out exactly who the shooter is.  Up to this point we have not actually gotten any shooter and I’m happy to report as well at this point that Karl Heusner is in a stable condition at the hospital.”

“The name Karl Heusner, outside of the KHMH, a look of our database has shown that he has been someone who has had previous run-ins with the law.  Is this gang related?  Is this motivated by some act of retribution or anything of that sort?”

Rafael Martinez

“I cannot report on that at this point.  I am not sure what the motive is at this point.”

Isani Cayetano

“Is there any subsequent information to this particular shooting that you would want to share with us?”

Rafael Martinez

“Well presently, as I mentioned, we don’t have any leads as such and the police are still running that investigation.”

In February 2009, businessman Madhu Babani was robbed of four thousand, five hundred U.S. dollars as well as a gold necklace by four armed men including police officer Jeremy Moore and Karl Heusner Junior.  Following that incident, Heusner was charged in absentia for the crime of robbery since he escaped while being pursued by a police mobile patrol.

    I wonder if this guy is related to The Karl Heusner? If he is, I guess every single family on this planet (including mine) have a black sheep. Hope he straighten up his life after this.
