Security Guard Shot in the Neck

An on-duty security guard of Guadalupe Street in Belize City is tonight recovering from a gunshot to the neck. Thirty-one year old Victor Hendy was shot as he stood watch at New Asia Restaurant on Vernon Street just before nine o’clock on Wednesday night. Hendy was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and underwent a series of surgeries; he is now in a critical, but stable condition at the hospital as he recovers. According to police, Hendy was outside the restaurant when he responded to a call from inside. He saw a man with a handgun attempting to rob the business woman. Hendy reportedly stepped away from the door and called the police. While doing so, the gunman exited the establishment and fired a single gunshot at him causing his injury. Surveillance cameras at the restaurant recorded the ordeal. It shows two men wearing bucket hats enter the restaurant. Two patrons who were at the counter purchasing food were accosted by one of the men, while the other, wielding a gun, went behind the counter and pointed the firearm at the woman. When she yelled for help, the men retreated empty-handed. The duo then ran out of the store and as they left, the footage captured the gunman firing a single shot at Hendy, who ran towards the Fish Market. The assailants fled toward the direction of Mosul Street. Police are seeking a man of a Taylor’s Alley address, Belize City whom they believe can assist in their investigations.
