Javier LozanoOn Saturday, August 18th, at around 2:20 a.m., Jose Ku, 24, and Javier Lozano, 18, were wounded while at the intersection of the Belize-Corozal Road and Santa Familia Street, when they were fired at by a lone gunman, as they rode on separate bicycles.

Lozano was hit in the upper left side of his chest, left ribcage, the right hand and left forearm, while Ku received a gunshot wound in the right rib cage.

According to unconfirmed reports, Ku and Lozano were involved in a fight with the alleged shooter only a few moments before the incident in the vicinity of a popular night club.

Ku and Lozano then left the area, but were later confronted by the gunman, who fired several shots at them.

Both men were transported to the Northern Regional Hospital for treatment and were later transported to the Karl Husner Memorial Hospital.

Two men have been detained by Orange Walk police in relation with the incident.
