Crime2 Belize City men elude firing gunman

Yesterday, two men who were riding in the Port Loyola area of Belize City luckily escaped the lethal bullets of a lone gunman who let off a hail of shots in their direction as they traveled on Freedom Street just before midday.

Police said that they visited Freedom Street in Belize City yesterday, April 24, at about 11:35 a.m., and observed seven expended shells on the street.

Their investigations later revealed that at about 11:25 that morning, Jermaine Ottley, 18, a student of Freedom Street Extension in Belize City, was riding with Paul Sambula on separate bicycles on Freedom Street when they were approached by a brown-complexioned man wearing a blue T-shirt and short khaki pants who was also riding a bicycle.

Upon reaching Ottley and Sambula, the assailant then reportedly took out a black firearm and fired several shots in their direction, but both men managed to escape without injuries.

Police continue their investigations.
