Another Murder Recorded: Paul Bood Succumbs

A shooting incident in a relatively quiet neighbourhood off Fabers Road in Belize City has claimed the life of another teen. Contrary to reports from the police, nineteen-year-old Paul Bood was clinging to life at the K.H.M.H. since Saturday evening, and this morning, he succumbed to gunshot injuries to the head and upper body. Today, News Five spoke with his girlfriend, Sade Singh with whom he shares a one-year-old baby girl. She recounts the harrowing ordeal as it played out on Saturday evening.
