“A twenty-year-old tour guide operator of Armenia Village on the Hummingbird highway just barely escaped death after he was shot several times. According to the victim, 20-year-old Jose Amilcar, he was inside his black 4X4 Toyota pickup truck parked at the Governor General’s Field near the Ring Road in Belmopan when sometime around 8 p.m. he received a call from a female friend he was waiting for. The victim explained to Love News what happened after that.”

Jose Amilcar, Tour Operator

“I saw a gray vehicle circled around but I didn’t pay it any mind because I was talking on the phone. At around 8:30 pm when I was talking to my friend I saw the vehicle come across again but it pulled up on me and I heard the shooting. From then I reached for my firearm but when I did I saw my hand bleeding. So turned on my vehicle and came to the hospital.”
