3 persons including 2 minors charged for shooting a girl

Two minors, including a fourteen year old, are among three charged for the shooting on La Croix Boulevard in which fourteen year old Desiree Aranda was shot in the back. Last Thursday evening, the trio fired several shots at two persons, but missed and hit Aranda as she sat eating in her house. The teenager underwent surgery on Thursday and was released on Friday. Police have since charged three Belize City youths with a number of charges in connection with this shooting.

    seems that an epidemic of student murderers is on the rise….

    I used to believe that keeping youths at school stop them from joining gangs and killing.. but times have changed…… or they remain the same….. rotten apples either in the box or out of it…
    hope they have not spoiled the entire box while at school….

    Now with the educational financial reform finally in place… where educational institutions are run like businesses…. we’ll have more news of students charged for murder…. schools will need to keep them in to maintain their budget…..

    what a good example for the rest of the students!!!

    It’s no longer only American influence but Middle East influence as well! Guns, guns, and more guns. Killings, killings, and more killings. “Fallow da leeda, leeda, leeda. Fallow da leeda.”
