17 year old shot in Dangriga

Hansel Garcia

There was another shooting in Dangriga which has left one youth recovering from three gunshot wounds. Just after eight pm on Wednesday night gunshots were heard in the vicinity of Castillo Alley, and when Police arrived on the scene they found seventeen year old Hansel Garcia lying on the street. He had been shot in the forearm, right leg and lower left back. Preliminary investigations revealed that Garcia was walking in Castillo Alley heading in the direction of Ecumenical Drive when a lone gunman came up to him and fired at him. Garica was fortunate, since he was only hit three times and Police recovered fourteen expended shells from the scene. Police are seeking one person of interest. If the name Hansel Garcia sounds familiar, it’s because in November his mother visited our studio to report him missing. She went so far as to suggest that he had been killed by a friend of his, but he turned up shortly after.

    @ Been there done that- U need to CHECK yourself! I am sure his mother and family cares if no other. That was a uncompassionate comment you made and was uncalled for. U should be careful how you comment and concern yourself with other’s affair’s, you NEVER know when you or close family and friends will be eating out of that same bowl of soup; WATCH IT!!!! I do agree it has become a way of life in Belize and it’s UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! “Most High” please have mercy on the innocent ones and impose vengeance on the guilty, including the PARENTS that know that child is involved in these activity but fail to report it!!!!!
