Marlyn Galvez, Sister of Shooting Victim

“It was a shock for me because the night I was at home and then around 10:30, my little sister called me and said that they shot my little brother. And I said, “No man.” I can’t believe it. So I called one of my other brothers and they told me that they rushed him to Corozal hospital and so I drove over there. The doctors did their best; they prepared him and put him in the ambulance. From the incident occurred he was talking. The night when it happened, he told the police what and who the person was; in the ambulance, same description. Yesterday, some of the officers came over and asked him a few questions and he was responsive to them.”

“It is sad, but unfortunately it is reality; it is not something that has been occurring right just now. It is something that has been progressing from a long time ago. There is a beef between the guys a long time ago; there’s feud there. My brother went to the police station in Corozal with my aunt to make reports against him so that’s a good thing because it is on his side. But we could not believe that it would result to something like this. I mean he was the stepfather to him so how could you think about picking up a gun and shooting an eighteen-year-old and not having any remorse about it because this is somebody that lived in a house with you. It is not somebody that I found you on the street.”
