Teen shot in the back

Raphael Martinez

On Monday, we reported on the death of thirty-seven year old Kareem Dixon, who was killed by his common-law-wife, Melanie Staine during a domestic dispute. Well tonight, their seventeen year old son is hospitalized after being shot on Wednesday night. Malik Dixon, who works in Orange Walk, only returned to Belize City after his father’s death and was on Mopan Street with twenty year old Ellis Meighan, an alleged affiliate of the Ghost Town Gang, when the shooting occurred. The circumstances have raised questions as to whether Malik was the intended target and if the shooting has anything to do with the death of his father. Police Press Office, Raphael Martinez, says investigators are trying to put together the pieces of the puzzle.

 

Raphael Martinez, Police Press Officer

“On Wednesday the tenth October at approximately eight-forty-five p.m., police visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where they saw a seventeen year old Belizean student, Malik Dixon, with an apparent gunshot wound on the lower back. Initial investigations revealed that at approximately eight-forty on the same evening, Malik and a friend were travelling in a grey Toyota corolla along Mopan Street when they were fired upon by two male persons standing on the street side. As a result, Malik sustained the injuries. Malik is presently at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a critical but stable condition. Police are again asking for your assistance to solve these crimes by bringing these criminals to justice. You can call any of the nearest police station or 911 or 922-TIPS, Crimestoppers. I want to mention as well that retrieved from the scene of this incident, this latest shooting were nine expended nine millimeter shells. Police are still trying to piece together the evidence to find out exactly what caused this shooting incident. I don’t want to say at this point if its gang related or related to a previous incident. But hopefully by the end of this week or early next week, we can get back in terms of closure to this.”

    Maybe the police didn’t look deep enough into how his stepfather was killed. Show me a Ghost Town banger, and I’ll show you someone who should be swept from the streets by any means necessary.
