Saturday, May 18th. 2019 –
The City was rocked with so much gun violence last night that you would have thought it was a large metropolitan area in America if you didn’t know it is a city with just 100 thousand people.

Sometimes it seems like the devils and demons that cause these shootings take a brake from the maddening gun violence, and there are some weekends with little or no violence, and then there are those weekends that begin in a way that seems like the ‘violence demons’ came up from hell and seeped into Belize.

Eleven-year-old Kyron Green and Raymond Fuller Jr, 21, are both hospitalized at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a critical condition following a shooting last night on Central American Boulevard in Belize City. Green sustained a single gunshot wound to the left side of his cheek while Fuller was shot twice to his mid abdomen and twice to his left thigh.

Around 6:58 p.m on May 17th Fuller, a warehouse attendant was standing at the entrance of a supermarket when a man rode past on a bicycle and fired several shots in his direction. Witnesses told the Reporter that after Fuller was shot he ran outside the store to seek assistance and was transported to the hospital in a pickup truck. Police arrived shortly after and took the minor to the hospital. The Reporter was informed that as part of their investigation Police have detained four suspects for questioning.
