Shot for his bicycle and phone

Fitzroy Yearwood

The fourth shooting victim is twenty-six year old Codrington Bood Junior. This Friday morning, just before two a.m., Bood was ambushed by an armed robber while riding his bicycle on North Creek Street in Belize City. A gunman pointed a pistol at him and told him, “Don’t Move!” In the blink of an eye, the assailant fired a shot hitting him on the left side of the abdomen. But despite being injured, a scuffle ensued between Bood and his attacker. He was then hit in the head and rendered unconscious. A few seconds later, he realized that he was being robbed of his cell phone, beach cruiser bicycle, sixty dollars and his bible.


Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“A little after one this morning when he was attacked by a Hispanic male. This person pulled a gun on him and told him not to move. He said that within a split second, he heard the gun go off and realized that he was hit in the abdomen. He managed to grab on to the weapon and he and this person had a struggle. But this person, because he had no injuries, ended up hitting Bood with the same firearm in the head. Bood realized when he woke up that he was robbed of his bicycle and cell phone. So Bood is also listed in a critical condition at the K.H.M.H.”


Bood is being treated for a swelling on the left side of the forehead, abrasions to the right side of his face and left knee, the gunshot wound to the left side of his abdomen, and a cut wound on the right side of his lip.
