By Benjamin Flowers: Wabinaha bar and nightclub in Hopkins, Stann Creek District, is now under police investigation after a 15-year-old woman became one of the victims of the mass shooting at the bar Sunday morning.
Today Police Commissioner Chester Williams announced his intention to investigate the establishment. The announcement was made in a Facebook post where he also updated the nation on the status of investigations into the shooting.
“An investigation is also underway against the owner of the establishment for breaching the conditions of his license by not having an adequate exit, not having adequate security and having a minor within the establishment” , Williams said.
He also told the nation that police have arrested the three men suspected of being responsible for the shooting and that they are expected to face court tomorrow morning.
Two people were killed and eight injured, including three police officers, in the incident.
Earlier today, the Progressive Party of Belize released a statement condemning the mass shooting and questioning how a minor could have been among the injured at a facility that should have a minimum age limit of 18 under the law.
