Two Lake I men survive gun attack

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Feb. 4, 2016–Benua Andrews, 26, and Tyrone Myers, also 26, both of the Lake Independence area, survived a murderous barrage of gunshots at about 7:30 last night, Wednesday.

Andrews and Myers told police that they were standing in a yard at the corner of Marigold Lane and Jasmine Street when a lone gunman came up and fired about 10 shots at them. The gunman then ran into Marigold Lane and disappeared.

Police say that Andrews was shot in the chest and Myers was shot in the left knee, right thigh, and left elbow.

The men were rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital by a BERT ambulance, and were admitted in a critical but stable condition.

The motive of the gun attack is unknown.

Police have started an investigation, and so far, one man has been detained, who police believe can be of assistance to that investigation.

Sergeant Rigoberto Novelo, Commander of Precinct 2’s crimes investigation unit, said that the scene was processed and eight expended 9mm shells were recovered.
