Man shot in standoff with Police

A man in Dangriga was involved in a standoff with law enforcement that resulted in him getting shot. Yesterday afternoon, Police were on mobile patrol in the 2nd New Site Area when their attention was drawn to Jason Gonzalez, who they say is wanted for burglary. Upon seeing Police, he reportedly ran into a nearby abandoned house and hid behind a curtain. Refusing to surrender, one officer drew the curtain and Gonzalez allegedly grabbed hold of his issued firearm. A struggle then ensued and other officers went over to subdue him. During the process, Police fired a single shot and caught the suspect in his left knee. He was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital and then to the KHMH. Police say they are investigating.
