Another San Pedro Shooting

Monday night we told you how the peace on San Pedro was shattered when the island saw its first targeted shooting in two years. It left 35-year-old Luis Abner Tun critical at the K.H.M.H.

And the gun violence wasn't a one-off because the very next night saw 25-year-old Joshua Gongora shot in the island's DFC area. It happened at around 9:30 pm last night when Gongora was riding his bike in that area. That's when he was approached by 3 men; one of them took out a firearm and let off a spray of gunfire- pictures of the scene show as many as 14 markers on the ground.

Gongora was shot twice and rushed to the San Pedro Polyclinic and thereafter to the K.H.M.H via air ambulance. Reports are that Gongora's mother and sister have joined him in the city where he is stable and recovering.

Our archives show that back in 2017 Gongora, now a victim of gun violence was arrested and charged with the offense of keeping an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

No one has been arrested for the two island shootings on Sunday and Monday.

Another Shooting in San Pedro; This Time in the DFC Area

A man from San Pedro was airlifted to Belize City for medical treatment following a shooting on Monday night. Reports are that just before ten p.m. shots rang out in the DFC area of San Pedro Town. Joshua Gongora was shot twice while on his way home. The twenty-five-year-old was rushed to the Doctor Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic and within an hour, he was transported via an air ambulance to Belize City where he reportedly remains in a stable condition. According to residents in the area, as many as ten shots were heard. One witness, who asked not to be named, said he saw around four persons running away from the scene, while another person was observed helping Gongora. Official information is that Gongora was approached by three male persons, one of whom took out a gun and fired several shots at him, causing the injuries. The investigation continues, but so far no one has been charged for this latest shooting on La Isla Bonita. This is the second shooting in two days. On Saturday, Luis Tun was shot in the San Mateo area; he too survived the attack.

Second non-fatal shooting within the week on La Isla Bonita

According to residents near the area where the shooting occurred, as many as ten shots were heard. One witness, who asked not to be named, said he saw approximately four persons running away from the scene while another person was observed helping Gongora.
