INDEPENDENCE. Stann Creek District, Mon. Feb. 25, 2019– Edward Conorquie, 22, of Vernon Street, who was in Independence attending a social event  on Saturday night, is in a critical condition in the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH)’s Intensive Care Unit, suffering from gunshot wounds in his head and back.

Conorquie was found lying on the roadside not far from the Punta Negra road’s  junction with the Southern Highway at about 4:00 Sunday morning by some persons traveling on the road. They rushed him to the Independence Polyclinic, where he was given initial treatment, and police were called.  He then was rushed to the KHMH for further treatment.

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of Crimes Investigation, told us today during the weekly police press brief held at the Raccoon Street Police Station, that on Saturday night, Conorquie was socializing at a party in that village, after which he left, and was later seen in a vehicle.

It is not known what happened, but he was found about five miles from where he had been socializing,  lying in the bush on the roadside, after being shot; it is not known if he was shot where he was found. So far, no one has been arrested for the shooting.
