After He Refuses to Rob Business

A shooting incident in San Pedro town has left a would-be robber injured. The victim has been identified as twenty four year old Derrick Wellington Rivers, a resident of the San Juan area of San Pedro town. According to police reports, Rivers ran into the police station around eleven thirty last night, with two gunshot wounds, one to the forehead and the other to the right arm.

Police say their initial investigation reveals that Rivers and two other men from San Pedro were plotting to rob a business place, but when Rivers got cold feet and changed his mind, one of his co-conspirators tuned the gun on him. Rivers have been able to identity to police the man who shot him. Rivers was taken to the San Pedro Poly Clinic and later transferred to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is listed in a stable condition. Police have detained the man alleged to have shot Rivers.

Accomplices shoot fellow thief for declining to commit robbery

There is no honor amongst thieves and that old adage was proven true once again on Ambergris Caye. Three men conspired to participate in an armed robbery and assault, but one of the men got cold feet. But instead of simply parting ways peacefully, the other two tried to kill Derrick Rivers of San Pedro Town. Public Relations Officer for Police Department, Raphael Martinez told us more.

“At approximately eleven-thirty on Tuesday, the thirtieth of October, twenty-four year old Derrick Wellington Rivers of San Juan Area in San Pedro ran into the police station where he was seen with two apparent gunshot wounds—one to his forehead and the other to the right arm. Initial investigations revealed that Rivers along with two other men from San Pedro were plotting to rob a business place, but when Rivers reportedly changed his mind and that caused one of his would-be-partners to shoot him; allegedly. He was taken to the San Pedro Polyclinic and was later transferred to the K.H.M.H. where he is listed in a stable condition. One man has been detained for the shooting.”
