A man who was shot in his neck while playing video games at a friend’s house in Belize City on Sunday July 8th. died from his injuries the following day while receiving treatment. Emmerson Talbert, 25, was discovered by Police in a critical condition at around 12:15 a.m., on July 9th at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital with wounds from a bullet which ripped through his neck.

Investigations by Police into the incident revealed that Talbert was sitting at the entrance of a residence on Cemetery Lane, along with two other male persons engrossed in a video game, when a gunman strode in, took aim at his victim and fired the fatal shot. Police on Monday confirmed that Talbert was the gunman’s intended target since other persons who were inside the home at the time of the shooting were not attacked or threatened in any way.

Residents in the area say that Talbert was not a street figure and did not have any beef with anyone, so the reason behind the attack which took his life is still a mystery to those who knew him well.

Police on the other hand say that they are actively pursuing a possible motive for Talbert’s murder, but since the investigation is in its infancy stage, the information cannot be divulged to the public. In the interim, Police continue their search for possible suspects.
