Man shot in face; was politics the motive?

There was a shooting incident near the Benque border today. Was it a random act of violence or was politics involved? The details are still sketchy but it involved a twenty-four year old man who lives in the Belize side of Arenal Village. According to sources, Minor Najaro was driving a black Toyota Corolla with taxi license plates when the incident occurred. Najaro was hired to take a man known as Weso to Melchor. Weso, however, pulled out a gun and shot Najaro in the face.  Apparently Weso intended to shoot him again but another cab driver identified as Jorge Chanec was passing by and the shooter fled the scene on foot. Chanec then transported Najaro to receive medical treatment. There is an additional element to the story that can’t be confirmed. Two sources allege that a few days ago, the driver of an elected politician from the west, invited Najaro to dinner, during which Weso was present. And that was allegedly the only time that Najaro had met Weso prior to the shooting. Najaro has been transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he is accompanied by his mother and sister, Edilmira and Mira. Both relatives are reluctant to comment.

    stop talking bs investigate before writing things and stop saying gosssipas about people.all of you do not know the lives of other people live ypur live an leave people alone .Thats why they are many crimes in belize because people just like talk and talk even though they do not know anything for real, so stop accusing people without proofs and the samething should do the guy who was shot because for talking thay can come back and kill him and his family so its better to be quiet than talking things .people are safe if they keep there mouth shot,its better to have our mouth shot cause if we talk nosense its with all we that will be in danger.
