While the spate of shootings in Belize City left several persons injured, fortunately no one was killed.  The most recent attack, however, took place around nine-thirty on Sunday night on Logwood Street.  Quick police response led to the detention of the alleged gunman who reportedly turned his weapon on the officer.  In the process, Ian Jenkins, the suspect in the armed attack, was shot in the finger.
