Devon Faber, a resident of the West Lake community at Mile 8 on the George Price Highway is lucky to be alive. He was about to leave his yard when a gunman drove up and fired several shots, one which grazed his left shoulder and another which hit him on the right shoulder. He says he didn’t see the assailant in the vehicle.Though he was shot on Sunday evening, he discharged himself from the hospital on Monday morning. We found him sitting in his yard recovering this morning but he declined an interview. The police say that they have not yet detained any suspects.
ASP Alejandro Cowo Head CIB: “Police visited the hospital again where they observed Devon Faber a Belizean of #1 32 West Lake Park area which is located at 8 ½ miles on the George Price Highway. He was observed with apparent gunshot wounds to his body. We understand that he was treated and he was released on that same night after being attended to by the medical doctors.
