By Chrisbert Garcia: Two Belize City females are today hospitalized at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) after they were shot last night by gunmen who surrounded their Dolphin Street home and unloaded a hail of bullets.
Police visited the KHMH shortly before 9:00 p.m., where they saw 41-year-old Stephanie Smith with a gunshot wound to her abdomen and 18-year-old Shenell Rolland suffering from gunshot wounds to her abdomen, as well as her right leg.
The ladies told officers that around 8:40 p.m., they were inside their house when they heard gunshots from behind and in front of the yard, after which they realized that they were hit.
Both women remain in stable condition and police have detained 22-year-old Tyrone Meighan, along with three minors as they seek two other persons for investigation into the incident.
