A Belmopan minor is shot while assisting friends

But on Wednesday, a minor was shot after he and a group of friends were attacked on Panama Street in the Salvapan Area of Belmopan. Sixteen year old student, Yasmani Aguirre, told police that he was helping a group of four friends to repair a motorcycle when they were approached by four men armed with machetes and two home-made firearms. Aguirre says that the men assaulted them and then proceeded to chop the motorcycle and when he tried to chase them away with rocks, one of them fired a shot, which caught him on the elbow.
