Twenty-one-year old Mario Fino is behind bars tonight after he reportedly shot his father and fired at police officers. Last night, Belize City police responded to a report of a domestic dispute in the Kings Park area. When they got there they encountered an infuriated Mario Fino who had in his possession a pellet rifle. The standoff led to shots being fired and, fortunately, Fino being subdued. In the process, Fino’s father received injuries to the head. According to ASP Alejandro Cowo, told us more.
Fino’s mother, Marleni Argueta says that her son suffers from a mental illness.
Though violent outbreaks have happened, Argueta says that her son has never attacked his father in such a violent manner as he did last night.
