A Claim that Police Shot Brandon Mejia on Jasmine Street

Alejandro Cowo

A formal report is yet to be filed with the Belize Police Department, following an incident on July twenty-sixth in which a vehicle driven by Brandon Mejia was reportedly shot at on Jasmine Street.  According to Mejia, while driving along that carriageway in Lake Independence he came under gunfire from police in the area.  The shot that was fired reportedly damaged the vehicle’s windshield.  Notwithstanding the incident, Mejia is yet to go in and make a complaint against the officer or officers who allegedly opened fire on him.
