Tour guide, 22, survives shot in the head

A 22-year-old Belize City man who was shot in the head yesterday was fortunate enough to survive the ordeal and to later relate an account of the events leading to his injury, to police.

Egbert Bailey, 22, a tour guide who resides in Belize City, reported that he was at his cousin’s home with three friends at about 8:15 last night at Antelope Street Extension in Belize City, watching television when he heard a loud bang, which sounded like a gunshot, and realized that he was bleeding from the right side of the head.

Bailey reportedly told police that he looked outside and saw two men whom he recognized, standing about 12 feet away from the house where they were, and further stated that four other loud bangs were also heard from the direction in which the men were standing.

By that time, however, all four people in the house managed to take cover on the ground.

Police said that they are looking for the two men.
