There was also gun violence up north. An Orange Walk man was shot once to the chest while he managed to dodge several other bullets as he was riding in that northern municipality. Over the weekend James Pelayo was on his bike when five men tried to ambush him. Press Officer, Inspector Fitzroy Yearwood has the details.


Inspector Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“We had a shooting incident in Orange Walk. This was reported on the second of September; police visited a scene on Mopan Street where they saw James Pelayo, lying complaining of pain in the chest. He had an apparent gunshot wound and he was rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital where he is listed in a stable condition. Pelayo reported to the police that some time before ten o’clock he was riding on Liberty Avenue when he came under fire from five male persons. He managed to escape from them on his bicycle of course where he collapsed on Mopan Street. He hasn’t identified any of his assailants yet and we are investigating that.”
