ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Belize City: “Police responded to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. It was just after 6 and upon arrival there they saw two male person with gunshot injuries to their body. The first male person was learned to be Gian Michael Moro, a Benque Viejo construction worker who is presently working at a construction site here in Belize City- he had an apparent gunshot wound to the right side of his hip and a graze to the left side of his neck. Also police observed another male person my the name of Christian who had an apparent gunshot wound to the neck and to the lower part of his body. Unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries whilst receiving treatment at the hospital. What we have gathered so far is that both of them are construction workers who are working here at the Maud Williams compound in the construction of the building. They had just left from there to go and purchase some items at a nearby Chinese store at the corner of Gibnut Street and Dolphin Street when they were approached by a male person who just fired several shots at their direction which cause the fatal injuries and injuring the other male person.”
Police have no motive at this time.
