Teenage Buglar Shot in the Face

A teenage burglar was shot in the face after ten o’clock last night. We are told that two men attempted to burglarize the home of 40-year-old Derek Broman and his 22-year-old common-law wife Rheanna Serano in Bullet Tree Village, Cayo District. In response to the attempted break-in, Broman fired at the intruders, hitting a 19-year-old in the face. ASP Fitzroy Yearwood briefed the media. 

ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “One of the assailants was shot on the scene and he is known to police as I previously listed that he was wanted in connection for questioning with another aggravated burglary earlier this year. I can tell you that he is under police guard at the San Ignacio Community Hospital at this time. “

Reporter: Can you tell us the nature of the injury he suffered allegedly in retaliation to the victims whose home he was trying to burglarize? 

ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “Yes what I can tell you is they made an attempt on this home and apparently they didn’t know that the victims had a licensed firearm and they returned fire causing his injuries.”
