The third shooting victim for the weekend, Elroy Saldano was shot near the Belize Water Services Limited on Monday afternoon. Police say Saldano is at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital fighting for his life.
Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino: “On the 15th of October around 1:30 pm Police received information that there was a male person at the KHMH suffering from gunshot wounds. As result Police visited the Hospital and there they encountered one Elroy Saldana, a 49 year labourer of a Belize City address, a East Collett Canal address. He was suffering from a single gunshot wound to the lower back area. From what Police understand is that Mr. Saldano was riding his bicycle on Hall St. and whilst he was doing so a male person approached him from behind and fired several shots one of which caught him and caused the injury. The matter is under investigation, we have no wanted persons of interest at this time.”
Love News reached out to BWSL to see if any of their three cameras that point directly to the crime scene captured the suspect. We were told, however, that the company could neither confirm nor deny if their cameras are working and that the shooting is police business.
