He is well-known to the law, and on Tuesday afternoon around three o’clock, Lloyd Faber was targeted by a gunman on Amara Avenue, Belize City.  Faber was socializing with a friend when a gunman drove up in a vehicle and opened fire at him. He was later seen ailing on the pavement and within minutes was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he has been treated and released. Police have yet to determine who targeted Faber, but investigation continues.
