Gun malfunction saves Twin security guard’s life

BELIZE CITY, Sat. Aug. 22, 2020– At about 7:30 this morning, a man went into Twin Superstore on St. Thomas Street, and quickly took out a gun, which he pointed at the security guard who was on duty at the store.

The security guard struggled with the robber to disarm him, but during the struggle, the robber was able to pull the trigger of the gun twice. Twice, however, the gun misfired, saving the life of the guard.

The bandit then hit the security guard in the head with the gun, and then ran out of the store.

The guard was then taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police are trying to identify and locate the gunman, who was wearing a mask on his face.
