Belize City Cops Shot Alleged Knife Wielding Man

A Police officer shot a man this afternoon on Cottonwick Avenue in Belize City. Information to News Five is that officers entered an abandoned building just after midday where they allegedly came across a man holding a knife in his hand. Officers reportedly demanded that the individual drop the knife, but the man allegedly did not comply. In response, one officer fired a single shot that caught the individual on the right leg. Moments later, an ambulance arrived on the scene. The shooting victim was then taken to the hospital for treatment.  He appeared to be fully responsive, following the ordeal. Information suggests that the individual was being sought by police in connection with a robbery at a church in Belize City. The Belize Police Department is yet to issue an official statement on this incident.
