POLICE REPORT: On Friday 25th May 2018 about 11:30pm, San Pedro Police Personnel visited the San Pedro Polyclinic where they observed a male Hispanic person being treated for an apparent gunshot wound to the lower back of his head. The male person was learnt to be Osner Campos 26, a bartender of San Pablo Area, San Pedro Town.
Initial investigation revealed that about 11:20pm Campos and another bartender were working at Wayo's Bar located in the Boca Del Rio San Pedro Town. Two male persons entered the bar one of whom were armed with a chrome in colour pistol resembling a 9mm and the other with what appeared to be a sawed off shotgun. The male person with the pistol proceeded to the bar area where he demanded the contents of the cash register be placed in a bag he had. The other assailant waited at the entrance of the bar.
While the cash was being retrieved from the register by the other bartender, the person with the pistol fired a shot towards the bar area which ricocheted hitting Campos to the back of his head. Both male persons then made good their escape with an undetermined amount of cash.
Campos was airlifted to Belize City where is is listed in a stable condition at the KHMH. Police investigation continues.
