GaryThree days after celebrating his 33rd birthday, Gary Bowen lay dead on the Partridge Street sidewalk in Belize City on Monday morning, February 4th. According to reports, Bowen left his home on Morning Glory Street to purchase food for him and his family to have breakfast. It was on his return at about 8:05 a.m., that he was riding his bicycle on Partridge Street when a gunman rode up beside him, pulled out a handgun and fired three shots at him. Bowen fell to the ground and the shooter rode away from the scene. Two of the bullets struck Bowen in the head and one in his left foot. He died on the scene.

Gary’s parents, siblings, common-law-wife and 8-year-old son are left to wonder why would anyone so ruthlessly kill their loved one. He is remembered as a jovial individual who doesn’t give trouble or hang with trouble makers. Information suggests that Bowen was killed because of a petty dispute that took place minutes before his murder. Police investigation continues.
