Cab driver, wife and toddler shot in vehicle

There is other violence to report. A toddler, cab driver and his wife were injured in a shooting incident on Thursday night in Belize City. It occurred after ten p.m. in the area of Kelly and Wilson Streets. Up to eight shots were fired at the family. Reports are that two gunmen fired shots at the taxicab. And though several of the shots penetrated the vehicle and caught all three occupants, the police say that the injuries are not life threatening.

 

Inspector Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“Patrick Bryant, forty-seven year old taxi driver was driving in his GEO Prism car on Wilson Street. He had his family members with him and two passengers and when suddenly reaching a junction on Wilson Street with a street that runs between Kelly and Wilson Street, a gunman just opened fire on the vehicle causing injuries to Brian, a minor, his common-law wife. They went to the K.H.M.H. for treatment. I know that the minor received a gunshot to one of his leg and the female also got a leg injury.”

“The minor we understand is nine months old?”

 

Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood

“”Nine month child, yeah.”

 

Giovanni Brackett

“Do you know the extent of the injury?”

 

Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood

“No not life-threatening.”

 

Giovanni Brackett

“Any motive for that shooting?”

 

Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood

“Not as yet. Investigators are still looking for clues on that. We know that Wilson Street is a very dark, secluded street. Whenever you drive through that area at that time of the night, it is almost not trafficable noh.”

 

Police don’t know the motive for the shooting and are looking for the gunmen. Police are also investigating a robbery earlier today at Gonzalo Quinto and Sons. Two armed men entered the store and robbed them of an undisclosed amount of money.

    Whether the victims live or die, the evil intent was the same. Bad aim should not be rewarded by mercy. I’d hang the gunmen if the decision were mine.

    All this senseless violence needs to stop… If the PM cannot handle the country’s affairs’ because of his wife, HE needs to step down and make someone else do the job. what Belize needs is a paramilitary group to eradicate the gang menace. Our govt is giving these criminals jobs which they use to finance their operations. I have no problem with a GSU going through our Old Capital and taking out the trash!!!!

    I’m 100% with Angel of Death on this crisis. Gangsters have made an evil choice, and the Jewel needs to to defend itself by eradicating them, by any means necessary. Armed citizens and vigilante justice is OK by me.

    Evidence of the Willy Lynch Syndrome……if ur not educated about it…GOOGLE it……key part?…put a gun in the BLACK community and watch them KILL themselves like fly. Its sad that black ppl regardless if dah farrin u live or Belize, it is well known that we can not conduct ourselves, our level of mentality towards each other is low, n it make much sense why Blacks out of all races is not being respected.
    WHAT these worthless ppl (KILLERS) dont realize that is that KARMA is well alive. The pain u cuz a mother to endure because of losing a child will be done unto u 10X worst. They think that their parent can not grieve over them because of this so call BAD MAN mentality.
    Where proverty is the CRIME rate will be high!

    Instead of killing themselves and their people, these fools need to be put in the BDF, stationed at the border and protect the country from the Guats instead.

    FITZROY YEARWOOD get Yourself off that damn chair and do something.. Opening your mouth every time a shooting occurs does not resolve the issue. Its not as if you don’t know who it is.
    Do something.. it seems that it has to happen to someone close to you to be able to do something..
    this is just sad and pathetic..

    DO SOMETHING !!!!

  12. Sasha says:

    This killer wasn’t attacking this person because of gang related, but the fact that he wanted the vehicle, mistaken identity or drugged up, whatever the case the neighborhood knows the people that are from that area and can help police solve problems, UNFORTUNATELY, they like to see more people die recklessly.
