Belize City man critical after Thursday night shooting

Twenty-eight year old Shane Vernon remains in critical condition tonight at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after being shot in the City on Thursday night. According to police, Vernon, who lives around the corner on Seagull Street, was standing in front of the gate of his ex-common law wife’s address on Iguana Street around eight-thirty p.m. when a single gunman approached from behind him and opened fire. Vernon was shot four times – in the upper right side of the back, lower right abdomen, upper left side of the back, neck and right hand. Police in the area responded but the gunman had already fled the area to a waiting vehicle that sped away. Vernon was reported to have undergone surgery after being taken to the hospital. Police investigations continue and the motive for the shooting is unknown at this time.
