Joshua Gallego, 25, had just dropped off his girlfriend and their two little girls at home on North Creek Street around 2:40 last Friday afternoon when the driver of another vehicle opened fire on him as he tried to reverse a short distance away from home. Gallego was struck three times in the chest and once in the neck and died shortly after coming out of surgery sometime before 8:00 later that night.

Police recovered three 9 millimeter shells and have impounded Gallego’s blue Mercury Tracer car for processing.

Police are looking at the likelihood that Gallego was targeted for past incidents and his subsequent arrest for Attempted Murder, Wounding, Use of Deadly Means of Harm and Grievous Harm, one of which was as recently as four months ago. They have still not yet established a motive for the killing, but Police believe that this was the result of an ongoing gang feud in the area where it happened.

Gallego had also confided in a relative that he wanted to flee Belize City because someone wanted to kill him, but he didn’t who or why.
