Southside Gang Associate murdered on Caesar Ridge

On Friday night, Shelton “Pinky” Tillett was gunned down. Retaliation was highly anticipated and while it is not confirmed if it is related, on Saturday afternoon, another gang affiliate was killed.  Peter Flowers Junior who is associated with the South Side Gang, the SSG, was gunned down in the most vicious way. Flowers was a marked man, the gunmen drove up in a car and blasted him as he headed to work at the Port. News Five’s Delahnie Bain has this story.

A crowd of spectators gathered on Caesar Ridge Road at around four o’clock on Saturday afternoon after gunshots rang out in the area. It was a gruesome scene as twenty-six year old Peter Flowers Junior laid dead on the sidewalk in a pool of blood. He had been shot twenty-one times, including five to the head, two on the neck and three in the center of his chest. And while the crowd was largely made up of onlookers, Flowers’ family members soon arrived, overwhelmed with emotion and devastation at the heinous killing. The area was cordoned off and the crowd was kept at bay as police arrived to process the scene. Police say Flowers tried to escape the gunmen, but he could not outrun the car or the hail of bullets.

“From the information we received out there, he was on his way to work; he was a Stevedore and upon approaching the Port of Belize main entrance a Toyota Camry came around the lane off the boulevard and opened fire on him. he ran and tried to escape from them but they ended up catching up with him and he received several shots to head and upper body region and to the legs. He died on the spot.”

 

Throughout the weekend, there was increase police presence on the streets, but it did not deter the wave of bloodshed that was anticipated since the gang warfare started on Friday. Police are still investigating, but it is known that Flowers was affiliated with the South Side Gang, known as the SSG. Someone clearly wanted Flowers dead and he had no chance of surviving the brutal attack. Delahnie Bain for News Five.

    PEOPLE ARE NOT BORN CRIMINALS BELIZE ITS A ACQUIRED BEHAVIOR (OR LEARN) THERE IS NO JUSTICE NO VICTORY WHEN A PERSON IS LABEL AND KILL IN THIS MANNER. THIS PERSON WAS GOING TO WORK AND HE WAS WORKING TO FEED HIS FAMILY…..UNFORTUNATELY HE HAD A PAST AND THE PAST HAS A WAY TO COME BACK AND BITE YOU.

    WHY DON’T WE PRESSURE THE AUTHORITIES TO STRENGTHENED OUR LAWS AND JUDICIARY SO WE COULD RAISE OUR CONVICTION RATES. ALL OF US, MOST OF US JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON FOR THE DIFFERENT LAWS TO BE AMENDED FOR EVERYTHING ELSE AND NEVER ADVOCATE FOR RIGHT LAWS TO BE CHANGE AND AMENDED, I REFUSE TO GO INTO THE DETAILS OF THOSE LAWS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THEM. SEE I LEARN LONG AGO THAT IF WE DON’T DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY WE WILL END UP SUFFERING MORE.

    AND PASSING AND POSTING TASTE LESS COMMENTS LIKE STORM & NOW I SEE, LISTEN I TAKE PART IN THIS MEDIUM BECAUSE I FIND FOR THE MOST PART WE ALL HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTIVE AND WE LEARN FROM EACH OTHER……….STORM…..AND…NOW I SEE….U GUYS HAVE BEEN GREAT IN THE PAST LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY………

    All you people praising these types of actions are dumb, ignorant a-holes. How the hell do you think fighting violence with violence will clean up the streets? Do you not realize in the process innocent people are paying the price? Fools; 2 wrongs do not make a right. You people with this mentality is what is wrong with Belizean society. Ignorance is the cesspool that is killing our future!

    He may have been going to work on that day.
    Wha happened to all the other people he killed and all the other bad things he did in the name of a gang. I myself do not understand the gang concept which end in such horrible manner. I say to the gangs, be a gang for something constructive, like cleaning and beautifying your neighborhood.
