We have nobody in custody for that shooting.
The victim is still in a critical condition.
There were other persons in the area when the shooting occurred, but again we cannot establish the identity of the shooter at this time.”
Police are cooperating with the Belize Defence Force in their investigation of the theft of ammunition rounds from a storage area at the BDF compound in Lords’ Bank.
According to Superintendent Romero no suspects have been found in this incident either.
