Commissioner Williams Monitors Crime Wave from Abroad After Near Miss Shooting Incident in Belize City

Commissioner Williams Monitors Crime Wave from Abroad After Near Miss Shooting Incident in Belize City

Despite being out of the country at a conference, Commissioner Chester Williams says he is monitoring the crime situation in Belize City.  The most recent incident occurred this morning, just off Mahogany Street, where a woman and her young child were able to escape gunshots aimed at the car she was driving.  The shooting happened just before eleven o’clock, and has now impressed the need for an increase in police presence.  The way the commissioner described the recent spate of gun violence, it seems all incidents are connected and gang related.

In this morning’s shooting incident, Andrea Avaloy and her young daughter were on their way home, and had stopped at a shop when the vehicle they had just exited was shot at several times.  The mother and daughter were not injured, but the driver’s side of the red sedan was riddled with bullet holes on the driver’s side.  Love News understands that Avaloy is the partner of street figure Hubert Baptist. Baptist and his brother are the alleged leaders of the B.L.C gang and are no strangers to the police. The shooting comes less than 48 hours after 18-year-old Jaheim Fitzgibbon was shot dead a stone’s throw away on Lacroix Boulevard. Fitzgibbon’s murder was believed to be gang-related and prompted authorities to detain two well-known gang figures.
