Ranchito resident shot multiple times by his son on New Year’s Day

Fifty-three year old Hensley Jones, a Belizean businessman of Ranchito Village in Corozal, is tonight recovering from gunshot wounds inflicted by his son on New Year’s Day.  It is alleged that Jones, popularly known as Nick, was at home with his son, thirty year old Hensleigh Ryan Jones, on Wednesday night when he was shot multiple times in the head.  Jones was inside the kitchen of his home when he was shot twice to the left side and once to the back of his head with a revolver.  What precipitated the near-fatal shooting remains unknown, despite the father‘s claim that he was shot for no apparent reason.  When Corozal police responded to the incident they were met by Jones, who was bleeding profusely from his injuries.  He was immediately transported to the Corozal Community Hospital via ambulance, before being transferred to the KHMH, where he remains in critical condition.  Recovered from the scene of the shooting was one thirty-eight special Smith and Wesson revolver and five live rounds of matching ammunition.
