Deportee gunned down on Faber’s Road

Police investigations continue into Saturday’s double homicide. And as the weekend was coming to a close on Sunday night, it appeared that Belize City would have been spared a regular weekend murder. However, another number was added to the murder statistic. A man, identified as Brian Welch, was walking on Faber’s Road when a gunman appeared and fired multiple shots. It is reported that at least one of those shots caught him in the face. New Five’s Andrea Polanco reports:

Shortly after six-thirty on Sunday evening, forty nine year old Brian Welch, reportedly a deportee from the U.S.A was walking on Faber’s Road when he was gunned down.  A short while later, police were processing the scene as residents gathered in the area. Shortly after, Welch’s body was carted off to the morgue in the back of a police truck. Residents say they heard at least six shots fired at Welch who was apparently walking on the street at the time. He was later discovered dead in a nearby yard, near a pile of rubble. Welch isn’t known to have many friends or family nearby. Apparently, Welch lived in Hattieville where Arthur Underwood showed him kindness and allowed him to live on a property he owned.

    Live like a gangster, die like a gangster. What did he expect?

    But his murderers should still hang.

    May God have mercy on his soul.

    I met this guy just after he was deported from the US and we were coworkers…I know for sure he was a ruthless criminal that lived by the gun and so he died.

    Not every deportee is a criminal people.Someone can be deported from the US for something as simple as a traffic infraction.
