By Breaking Belize News Staff: In the pre-dawn hours of Monday, July 17th, a mother and her young daughter became the victims of a violent gunfire attack at their home in Belize City. Authorities are now investigating the deadly incident, which claimed the life of the young mother and left her daughter injured.

Police were dispatched following a report of gunshots at a two-story plycem house with a zinc roof on Plues Street, where they were met with a strong smell of kerosene. Upon their arrival, they discovered a 23-year-old woman lying face-up on a bed, suffering from gunshot wounds to her abdomen.

The woman was rushed to the KHMH for urgent medical attention, but despite the best efforts of the medical team, she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at 3:22 am.

Meanwhile, police officers arrived at the hospital with the mother’s 4-year-old daughter who had also suffered gunshot wounds, specifically to her right thigh. The initial investigation indicates that the mother and daughter were sleeping in their bed, located close to the plycem wall of the house, when gunfire erupted from outside.

The scene was examined and processed and authorities collected several expended shells and a blood swap. The area, characterized by poor lighting conditions, was canvassed thoroughly. As of now, the perpetrator remains unknown, and there is no identified motive. The investigation into this tragic event is ongoing, with authorities actively working to bring those responsible to justice.
