By BBN Staff: Last night police received reports of a female minor that was shot sometime before 8 near the Kraal Road in the south side area of Belize City.
However, the minor and her parents are reluctant to make an official police report or seek medical treatment and told authorities that they will think about what actions they will take.
The minor was reportedly grazed to the right side of her shoulder after eighteen shots were reportedly fired off in the area.
Police suspect that the shooting may be gang-related and they know two persons who might have been involved in the shooting, however, they have not been detained.
Police investigation is ongoing.
