There were a total of 6 weekend murders, a strangulation and four other shooting incidents reported this weekend in the Belize District. The shooting spree began on Friday afternoon when thirty-three year old, Sakidi Baizar was fatally shot. The revenge murders were mostly innocent people who either lived or worked in the areas. However, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Alejandro Cowo said the incident involving Baizar was gang related.
ASP Alejandro Cowo: “He was being treated at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital however he succumbed to his injuries minutes later whilst being treated at the Polyclinic. What we know so far is Mr. Baizar the deceased was inside of the Polyclinic receiving medical attention and about exiting; he was walking on Magazine Rd. and then he took that alley that leads from Magazine to Johnson St. Whilst he was about half way he was approached from behind by a male person who just approach him and fired indiscriminately at him causing the fatal injuries. There is no arrest, there is no person detained however we are looking for two persons that can assist us in this investigation.”
Baizer was well known to Police.
