Dean Nembhard a Gunman’s Target in Lake

Wilfredo Ferrufino

There was a shooting in the Gungulung area of Belize City, off Holy Emmanuel Street, where twenty-one-year-old Dean Nembhard was targeted by a gunman. Sometime around four o’clock on Tuesday afternoon, Nembhard was shot twice to the abdomen. While it is believed to have been as a result of gang rivalry in the area, police were unable to confirm a motive for the crime. Inspector Wilfredo Ferrufino says that one person has been detained in connection with this shooting.

“Mister Dean Nembhard was walking on Set Cite; he heard several shots and as a result he realized that he was shot. He was taken to the K.H.M.H. and police investigation has revealed so far that he was walking on the street and an unknown gunman opened fire and caused two gunshot wounds to his abdominal area. One person was detained for that and he is being questioned as investigation is ongoing.”



“Sir, initial information reaching us suggested that it may be motivated by rivalries in the neighborhood. Are you able to say if similar information is getting to the investigators?”


Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino

“I don’t have that information if it is gang related so I cannot comment on that.”



“Any motive identified as yet?”


Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino

“No motive at this time.”



“Any persons you are looking for?”


Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino

“Like I said, we have one person detained and that person has been in question.”
