Police Investigate Murder of Mark Lord on Jones Street

Mark Lord

Only an hour before John King was gunned down on Victoria Street Saturday night, there was another murder in Belize City. Thirty nine year old Mark Lord was walking on Jones Avenue when a gunman approached him and opened fire. He sustained injuries to the body that eventually led to his death. ASP Fitzroy Yearwood gave us the details.

“Sometime around six thirty five p.m. police visited a scene on Jones Street between Lawrence Avenue and McKay Boulevard where they say they lifeless body of Mark Anthony Lord on the ground in a poll of blood. Quick police response led to the apprehension of two men and the discovery of what we believe was the weapon used in the orchestration of that crime. Both men are still detained and hopefully by the end of today we will levy charges against them. We believe one of the men detained and Mark Lord was involved in a argument the other day. We know that Mark was walking when he was approached by one of these men who opened fire causing his fatal injuries. That man then proceeded to yard not too far from where the crime was committed when he saw the police coming. He then threw the weapon on a structure in the yard that resembles a foul coup. Officers were able to recover that firearm. We have both men detained pending charges until we are clear which one of them orchestrated the crime or if both of them conspired to commit that crime.”
