“We commence with the shooting last night of Mr. Brindel Munnings, forty-four-year-old Belizean.  What we understand is that he was walking behind Inspiration Center.  There is an alley that leads from there to Police Street and this was at just before eleven o’clock he was riding his bicycle when he was approached by a male person who fired shots at him causing injury to his body.  He was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is presently admitted in a critical condition at this moment.  So far police have detained three persons and are looking for one male person that can assist in this investigation.”

“Brindel Munnings, for whatever reason, seems to be someone well-known in certain circles.  What do you believe may have been the reason behind his attack?  Is it gang motivated?”

 

Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“No, we have spoken to family members and what we understand is that it’s a dispute [between] him and the suspected shooter, you know.”
