You may have seen him on the news as the Chairman of the newly formed Progressive Cane Farmers Association, but tonight, Abizur Loza is making headlines because he was shot early this morning at a cane field in Patchakan Village, in the Corozal District.

Police haven't released any official information as yet, but what we have been able to find out is that he was in his cane field on the outskirts of the village known as Chaac Luuc. There is suspicion that whoever attacked Loza, shot him after they ambushed him in the bushes in some time between 1 and 2 a.m. this morning.

At this time, all we know is that he had to be transferred to the KHMH for further treatment. Today, his wife, spoke to our colleagues from Love FM, saying that she does not know much about the incident:

Voice of: Wife of Abizur Loza
"Yes, last night he went to his cane field. I don't know. Maybe they were waiting for him there. He was injured on his right arm. The injury looks bad. He was alone at the time of the incident. I don't know what time it happened."

Our colleagues from CTV 3 have spoke to persons within his village, and they say that he had been looking for a partner to go hunting with, but no one wanted to accommodate him, and so he went by himself.
