Leroy Gladden Shot in Belize City

Twenty-seven-year-old Leroy Gladden is fortunate to have escaped grave injuries after coming under gunfire on Tuesday night.  The stevedore, of a Black Orchid Street address, was standing in front of a residence a short distance away from where he lives when he and several friends he was socializing with were fired upon by two gunmen.  During the spray of bullets, Gladden was struck once to the right side of the chest, the bullet exiting his right arm.  Gladden was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.  A motive for the shooting is yet to be determined.  Meanwhile, Belize City police continue their investigation.
