Z Gas Targeted again. Security Guard Shot

Z Gas on the Philip Goldson Highway has been targeted twice this year. On New Year’s Day, a security guard was tied up while thieves broke into the office and stole an undisclosed amount of cash. On Friday night, another security guard encountered would be thieves. The security guard on duty, Omar Diaz was shot at the facility for Z Gas at an area outside of Ladyville Village. Love News spoke to his daughter Monica Diaz as well as the police department about the ongoing investigation into the incident.

ASP Alejandro Cowo Head CIB: On Friday the 1st of February just before 3 AM Police visited the Zeta Gas company located at 13 ½ miles Phillip Goldson Highway where they observed Mr. Omar Diaz suffering from apparent gunshot wound to the stomach. He was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is still hospitalized in a stable condition. What police has gathered so far is that Mr. Diaz was doing his runs at the compound when he heard the dogs barking. As he exited the booth and walked towards the tank area he was approached by someone who fired a shot at him causing the above mentioned injuries.”

Jose Sanchez: “ Was it a robbery in progress?”

ASP Alejandro Cowo Head CIB:Nothing was stolen from Mr. Diaz.”

Jose Sanchez: “ Is he the same Security Guard who was tied up on New Years Eve?”

ASP Alejandro Cowo Head CIB: I am not sure.”

Jose Sanchez: “Was there anybody arrested for that robbery at the time that the Police Department said that there was an undisclosed amount of cash that was taken from the office?”

ASP Alejandro Cowo Head CIB: No one was detained for that investigation.”

Daughter of Victim: “After he went into surgery the Doctors now are observing him and seeing how his body will respond to the surgery. He had a lot of purges made in his stomach so we are just waiting for a good recooperation.”

Jose Sanchez: “And you also need some assistance from the public as well, tell us about that?”

Daughter of Victim: “Yes sir because actually there was no one that went in and got through with the donating because they are not the A negative or O negative so we are awaiting to see if someone can go and donate because the Doctor told us that if the surgery doesn’t work they might have to do another surgery but I am not so sure about that.”
