Tarique Thompson Succumbs to Gunshot Injuries

Tarique Thompson

Police have another investigation on their hand that is being upgraded to murder. Fifteen year Tarique Thompson, a second form student of Canaan High School, died on Saturday at the K.H.M.H where he had been getting treatment since Monday. Thompson was shot last week on Lakeview Street just a stone’s throw from his house on Sibun Street in Belize City. He is the second student to have died within twenty-four hours by gun violence. In the same area on Wednesday night, at the corner of Banak Street and Magazine Road, another student, Reuben Leslie was shot while he rode home. The Wesley College student, of an Antelope Street address, expired on Friday night. Leslie was shot on the forehead after he was ambushed by a lone gunman who fired several shots at him.
