A 43 year old man was shot to the chest on Saturday night in Biscayne Village at his home at 26 3/4 miles Phillip Goldson Highway. Ladyville police filled us in on the details.
Inspector Juanito Cocom, Officer Commanding Ladyville Police: David Richard Taylor, 43 year old, Belizean Laborer of Philip Goldson Highway. He reported that he was alone when a white SUV vehicle drove to his narrow driveway, and whilst approaching the vehicle, a Hispanic and a dark skinned male person came out of the vehicle. The dark skinned male person was armed with what appeared to be a pistol and then they ordered him to the ground. He refused to go on the ground and grabbed the pistol and a struggle ensued whereby a shot went off. He received a shot to his chest where he was then transported to the KHMH by police.
Taylor managed to escape from the male person and ran into his house, locked the door and called the police and neighbors. Taylor was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he was admitted in a stable condition. Police are investigating.
