According to Police reports on Sunday, May 11th, at 10:00 pm., Giovanni Borland and Joseph West were at a local bar in Corozal Town when an argument between them started.
According to reports, Joseph West, left the area enroute to another bar which was located about two lanes away. However, Giovanni Borland, reportedly followed West.
Somewhere along the way he allegedly picked up a machete and approached Joseph West where a struggle ensued.
However, West was able to take away the Machete from him. Shortly after, Denmar West, Joseph West’s brother, came out of a bar and was going home when he was allegedly attacked by Giovanni Borland with an object.
Joseph West, saw what he did to his brother and as a result pursued Giovanni Borland. While running, Giovanni reportedly fell to the ground and that’s when Joseph allegedly inflicted a chop wound to his head with the same machete he had taken away from Giovanni.
Giovanni Borland has since been transported to the KHMH where he was in a critical condition. We just received news that Borland passed away this evening as a result of his injuries.
There has been no word as yet on whether charges have been filed against his alleged attacker, Joseph West, who has been detained by police pending further investigations.
