Suspect arrested in shooting of vendor

Police have arrested and charged twenty-one year old Roque Rosado of Neal’s Pen Road in Belize City with attempted murder, deadly means of harm, dangerous harm and robbery in connection with the shooting of Guatemalan vendor Ziriaco Mejia Hernandez. Rosado, who was arraigned on Monday, is on remand at Hattieville Prison until December eighteenth when he is scheduled to reappear in Magistrate’s Court. Mejia was robbed and then shot in the left side of the chest around five last Friday morning by two men at the corner of Richard Street and Water Lane, where he was preparing to sell his plastic wares. While police have charged only Rosado, they say they are confident the other suspect will soon be apprehended.
