The driver of a delivery truck was shot just after ten o’clock this morning in Belize City.  Love News was at the crime scene shortly after and found Police personnel processing an area on Mahogany Street where several expended shells were found.   Love News understands that 43-year-old Jose Santos was in the driver’s seat of a delivery truck awaiting his coworker who had just gone inside Tow Tow Grocery Store. Whilst waiting he was approached by a lone gunman who fired several shots in his direction.  Santos reportedly received multiple gunshot wounds.  He was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) where he is now in a stable condition.  In canvassing the area, Love News learned that Police found a black 9 millimetre Ruger brand firearm in a drain nearby.  It is suspected to be the weapon used in the shooting.
