Another Belize City man is dead as a result of gun violence. 22 year old Emerson Talbert was at a friend’s house on Cemetery Lane on Sunday sometime around midnight. They were playing video games when a male person showed up and shot Talbert in the neck. Police told us more.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, Head of N.C.I.B.: Sometime just after midnight, Mr. Emerson Talbert, a 25 year old Belizean of #67 Race Course Street, was at a friend’s house located at #33 Cemetery Lane. Whilst playing a video game along with other friends, a male person entered from the front door and fired a single shot at his direction. He was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he was admitted in a critical condition but unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries sometime after 10am this morning. Our investigation points to the fact that he was the intended target. There is the possibility of a theory that we are looking at this moment, but it’s in a young stage and I cannot give you the exact information, as it may affect another information that we are dealing with.
Talbert was no stranger to police. Police say they have no suspects at this time.
