Shooter sought in robbery attempt

Police are asking the public for help in finding a suspect in an armed robbery. Herman Morris, better known as Yaga, has been identified as one of three men who tried to hold up a shop Tuesday on Lakeview Street in Belize City. According to the proprietor, the robbers became frustrated when they could not penetrate the store’s interior steel bars. When one of the men tried to climb through the serving window, the owner cracked him over the head with a bottle, at which point, an armed accomplice, said to be Yaga, fired four shots into the shop. No one, however, was hit. The trio then fled on bicycles.
