Chaos erupts on Mayflower Street

2 min read

Things turned ugly on Sunday on Mayflower Street in Belize City as the GSU descended in the area in an attempt to detain a ‘Ghost Town Gang” affiliate. The crowd was not having it and chaos erupted with shots being fired and bottles thrown and broken. If you are on Facebook you might have already seen videos of the incident, showing the pandemonium that unfolded following the funeral of Kendis Flowers. He was one of the Ghost Town Gang bosses who was shot and killed on March 17. His family and associates believe that law enforcement authorities, specifically members of the GSU, were involved in his murder. The Belize Police Department has refuted such claims. So why was the GSU sent to the area? According to Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, as the funeral procession passed in front of the area on Sunday, shots were fired and residents of the area frantically called the police. This prompted him to deploy law enforcement officers to arrest the situation but as we have seen, that made matters worse. Today Hipolito Novelo visited Mayflower Street and filed the following report.
