Couple relaxing on veranda shot at

28-year-old Kareem Morris, a fisherman of Belama Phase 3, Belize City, reported that about 11:30pm on Sunday November 23, he was on the veranda of his residence, along with his common-law wife, when a clear complexion man, wearing a brown shirt, long jeans pants and black cap approached them. Upon reaching about 15 feet away from them he pointed what appeared to be a 9mm pistol at them and fired several gunshots in their direction. No one was injured; however, the cement wall of his residence was damaged. The man then ran towards the Haulover Creek and made good his escape.
Three 9mm expended shells and (2) fragments were retrieved from the scene.
Police investigations continue.
