Malik Green is Shot Near Kelly Street, Police Investigate a Motive

Eighteen-year-old Malik Green was shot on Sunday morning in Belize City near Kelly Street.  The resident of Hunters Lane, who has refused to cooperate with investigators, simply told police that he was shot by an unknown assailant as he sat on a fence nearby.  Police believe that the attempt on Green’s life may have stemmed from an issue he may be having with other individuals who are known to him, but that’s as much as they are saying.  The incident took place sometime before ten o’clock.
