Several Persons Detained in Connection with Murder of Baby Kia c

Another innocent infant was senselessly killed in the spate of violence in the city. Five-year-old Kia Herbert was sleeping with her mother inside their bedroom when a gunman aimed his gun at the house on Pitter House. Frances Herbert was struck once to the shoulder, but baby Kia took three bullets to the abdomen and succumbed shortly after at the K.H.M.H.  Since then, an investigation has led to the detention of several persons but no charges so far.

“Early Tuesday morning, shortly after 1:30 a.m., police were called to Pitter Street in Belize City where they observed one Frances Herbert with gunshot injuries along with her five-year-old daughter, Kia Herbert who apparently was also shot. They were both transported to the K.H.M.H. where Kia succumbed to her injuries while undergoing treatment. We have several leads in relation to this matter and police have detained several persons pending this investigation.”
