A Belize City woman was injured on Friday night during a spray of bullets fired at a residence on Boots Crescent.  Reports are that as many as fifteen shots were fired in the direction of a group socializing inside the yard.  When the shooting subsided Jasmine Sanchez had been wounded.  While she would not confirm what led to the attack, investigators are looking at all angles, including gang activity.
