Another elderly person was the victim of a crime yesterday. 57-year-old Levi Brown, a Belizean Security Supervisor of J&B Security Firm and a resident of Belize City, was shot to the back of the head yesterday evening at about 6:30.
Police reports are that Brown was riding his bicycle on East Collet Canal heading in the direction of King Street and upon reaching the corner with Dean Street; he was shot and fell to the street unconscious.
He was transported to the K.H.M.H. where he later regained consciousness and was admitted in a stable condition.
A knapsack he was carrying at the time which contained a deposit bag with assorted cheques and a loaded point 38 pistol was missing.
Witnesses say that after Brown was shot, the armed assailant quickly snatched the knapsack, checked Brown’s pockets, and escaped. Police are investigating.
