Suspects identified in Belize City shoot-out

Story Picture
Less than twenty four hours after a hail of bullets terrorized students and residents along Kraal Road in Belize City, police have moved one step closer to solving the case. A black pick-up truck believed to be the one carrying a group of gun-toting men who were shooting at a taxi as it drove down the street, was today found abandoned just off Faber’s Road and towed to Eastern Division Headquarters. The police have also detained one suspect in connection with the bizarre drug related incident and are asking for the public’s assistance in apprehending two others. While they have not released the name of the suspect in custody, the police are in hot pursuit of one Alex O’Brien and ex-cop Ernest Savery. Three people, one of them an innocent passerby, were injured in Thursday’s mid-morning shooting rampage. All have been released from the hospital.
