A mother of two small children has been placed in an induced coma at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) after she was shot early Monday morning.
According to police reports Camille Munnings, 29, was socializing with her boyfriend Akeem Garcia, 29, and his friend Raul McFarlane, 34, at around 12:23 a.m. near Island Oasis located on Xocol Street in Caye Caulker when a gunman attacked them.
Munnings was shot into the left upper shoulder and the back of the head while Garcia was shot to his left leg and lower back and McFarlane was shot to his left upper back and left leg. Garcia and McFarlane are currently in a stable condition receiving treatment for their injuries at the KHMH.
Munnings on the other hand is in a critical condition. She was placed on life support but since Tuesday she began to breathe on her own. She has opened her eyes and is currently able to move her fingers. The swelling on her brain has also gone down. Doctors, however, are still struggling to locate the bullet lodged in her head. If Belizean doctors are unable to find the bullet, the family is seeking to transport her to a facility in Chetumal.
According to our sources, police had detained two men from the George Street Gang in connection with this early morning shooting. The men were taken from Caye Caulker to San Pedro by police for interrogation. However, they have been released without charges. Sources say a misunderstanding had developed since early Sunday between George Street associates and persons close to the injured trio. We are told, unofficially, that a person close to one of the injured men had fired shots at the George Street associates sometime around 3 a.m. on Sunday. Police have not yet confirmed this allegation.
