2 men shot while hanging out on Banak Street

There were two other shooting incidents that occurred over the weekend.  The victims survived the attacks. Banak Street is occasionally the scene of shooting incidents or its residents are prone to violence in other parts of the city. It’s a frightening admission for the Belize City neighborhood, particularly for members of the Meighan family. It was in front of their home that twenty-seven year old Wilbert Dominguez and thirty-one year old Kenroy Thomas were shot after nine-thirty-five on Friday night.

“This incident happened in front of number twenty-seven Banak Street. One of the victim actually, one Wilhelm, is a resident of that area. he said that he was out there socializing with some friends when a black vehicle came up from the direction of Lake View Street towards the Boulevard. These men got close and then just began firing at them causing injuries to Wilhelm and another one of his friends, a young man Thomas. We cannot say for certain if it’s related to the Meighan brothers, but it’s not too far of a distance from their residence nuh. After this recent shooting on Friday, we have posted patrol in that area to look mainly—as a matter of fact, the police presence was felt out there until early Saturday morning. When I say police presence: processing the scene; at one point had the area cordoned off; as a matter of fact, we had another scene not too far from there on that same night. So traffic was diverted from that area and we are looking at other patrols that we will put in place—not necessarily for protecting that home, but for other residents of that area also. As you’ve noticed, two other persons have been hit on Friday. so we want to prevent any further incidents of this nature.”
