17 year old Tarique Gillett was shot yesterday. Gillett, a resident of Mahogany Street Extension, Belize City, was standing at the corner of an unnamed street that intersects with Holy Emmanuel Street sometime around 3:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon, Wednesday March 12th.
Tarique was along with three other male persons when two male persons rode up on separate bicycles and had an exchange of words with him. That exchange resulted in Tarique being shot to the right side of his chest. He was transported to the K.H.M.H where he appeared to be in a critical condition.
