Police constable shot himself in the head

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Mar. 26, 2015–A number of residents of Olivera Street in the Lake Independence area came out of their homes tonight to watch as a number of police vehicles descended on their neighborhood. After being on the scene for about two hours, police removed the body of a fellow police officer who reportedly shot himself in the head earlier this evening.

Police Press Officer Raphael Martinez has confirmed to Amandala tonight that Police Constable Shannon Ramirez died from a gunshot wound to the head, but he was not able to say whether the wound was accidentally inflicted or otherwise.

A neighbor told Amandala that she did not hear any gunshot and was surprised to learn that her policeman neighbor had died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Amandala was able to confirm that Ramirez was in a common-law relationship with a woman police officer attached to the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU).

Martinez was unable to confirm, however, whether or not Ramirez’s common-law wife was at home when he sustained the fatal gunshot wound.
