Joshua Gallego was shot near his home on North Creek in Belize City on the afternoon of Thursday, April 11, 2019 and succumbed to his injuries later that same night. Police say that he had just taken his family home when upon leaving, a single armed assailant approached him and fired several shots in his direction. He suffered multiple gunshot injuries to his body and succumbed to those injuries around 7:30 p.m. at the KHMH. Inspector Wilfredo Ferrufino says that while no one has been detained, the police are investigating the matter.

Police say that there is no official motive to Gallego’s murder but it is believed that the murder is as a result of the ongoing rivalry between the gangs from North Creek and Neal’s Pen Road. The police have activated mediation between those gangs in an effort to prevent any retaliation.
