The Raccoon Street Extension area has been relatively quiet when it comes to gun violence on the south side of Belize City, but on Thursday night, the life of twenty-nine-year-old Alrick Carcamo ended when he was shot by a masked man around eight-thirty p.m. Carcamo, who, residents say, lives in the area of Neal Pen Road, was socializing with a group of persons when the gunman wearing a Halloween mask, brazenly walked through a property and took aim squarely at him. He then escaped towards the end of Raccoon Street Extension.

“He noh frequent stay around here. He just come hail one of his friends. When ih come hail ih friend, I think dehn follow ahn and trail ahn and then dehn shot ahn.”

 

Three shots were fired; one caught the deceased in the left side of the abdomen. Even as he was injured, Carcamo ran to Fire Lane, off Raccoon Street Extension. Residents in the area began searching for him, but to no avail. It was not until two hours later, around ten-thirty that his body was discovered face down in waist-high, muddy water to the extreme corner of an open lot on Fire Lane.

 

Voice of: Resident

“They search fi ahn after everything done. But I say dehn shoulda never bring it out yah though. That dah weh I mean. Dehn shoulda neva bring it out yah. Dehn shoulda mi wait until the man gone somewhere else and then dehn do it.”

“Alrick wasn’t found until maybe two hours after the incident happened?”

 

Voice of: Resident

“Yeah two hours after yeah. Two hours after.”

 

This morning, investigators were back in the area as it is suspected that surveillance cameras along Raccoon Street Extension may have captured the gunman, believed to be a teenager. News Five understands that at least two persons are in custody pending further investigation into this latest homicide. Duane Moody for News Five.
