Tuesday, July 1, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Belize City teenager Myron Smith is the latest victim of gun violence, the third to be killed in as many days.
17 year old Smith, aka “Saddest,” of Giles Street, was shot in the left side of the chest near the armpit and the upper right side of the back.
According to police, around 8:10 Monday night, Smith was riding his bicycle along with two other men on Brown Street when they were fired on by unidentified persons, four times.
Smith ran across the basketball court but fell motionless to the ground; his friends got away unhurt.
His father, Alrick Smith, told reporters today that despite his best efforts, his son’s death was foretold because he failed to listen to counsel.

Smith was transported to the K.H.M.H. where he was pronounced dead at 9:25p.m.
Police recovered (2) S&B 9X19 expended shells, (1) .45 AUTO AP13 expended shell from the scene.
