Boots Crescent Resident Shot by Police

There was a shooting incident on Thursday night on Central American Boulevard.  Sometime around nine-thirty, Belize City police responded to a report of gunshots in the vicinity of Port Loyola where they met twenty-eight-year-old Phillip Mass Samuels.  He allegedly told the officers that he was the intended target of an unknown gunman.  It would be discovered shortly thereafter that Samuels was indeed the person who had discharged the firearm.  Upon being detained, the resident of Boots Crescent fled the area on foot and was shot by police.  A black and chrome nine millimeter Smith and Wesson pistol, along with a magazine containing five live rounds ammunition was later recovered.  Samuels remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. under police guard and is listed in stable condition.  Meanwhile, an internal investigation is also underway.
