BELIZE CITY, Tues. Jan. 15, 2019– Just before 9:00 last night, January 14, 35-year-old Anthony Crawford was shot in the chest. Fortunately, he survived the incident, and is recovering at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
Initial investigations revealed that Crawford, who is a Belize City resident, was riding his bicycle on Antelope Street, accompanied by another man, when he was shot. According to police reports, it was when he reached the corner of the street, that an unknown man came out of a yard and fired two shots in the direction of the men.
While Crawford sustained a gunshot injury, the other man was reportedly only grazed by the bullet. Crawford is currently in a coma and one of his kidneys was reportedly removed. He is in need of blood, so donors are being called upon to help save his life.
