The other shooting happened around nine o’clock on Wednesday night on Mahogany Street. One man was injured and is hospitalized at the Belize Healthcare Partners.  His family is appealing for help for twenty-five year old Steve Parks, who needs blood. Parks was shot behind the head while purchasing food at Favourite Snack Shop. News Five spoke with Parks’ sister, Pamela Baird, about the incident.

“Last night coming back from work he stopped at a Chinese restaurant on Mahogany Street to get some food and he just got shot in the back of his head. He was at KHMH last night and the doctors there did a cat scan and they him a thirty percent chance of survival and so we decided to bring him over here at Universal.  He needs twelve pints of blood because he needs to do a surgery and I’m appealing to all his friends out there to just go to the blood bank and donate the blood and just bring the slip over here.”

“What type blood is he?”

Pamela Baird

“Well they didn’t specify a type.  You just give it and then they are just going to make the exchange over that side.”

If you are willing to donate blood to help save Parks’ life, you may call Baird at 662-6323.
