A 16-year-old boy of Roaring Creek was hit in the abdomen after a gunman fired at him and a friend while they were sitting on the stairs of a house on Progress Avenue in Roaring Creek at about 9:30 yesterday morning, Wednesday. The gunman had come out of a car that drove up to within a distance of about 100 feet from them, and after the shooting, the gunman got back into the passenger side of the car, and the driver then drove away.
The boy saw his abdomen bleeding, and he and his mother went to the Belmopan Police Station and reported the attack.
Police later found the car in Roaring Creek. It was immediately impounded and taken to the Belmopan Police Station.
Police are now seeking the occupants of the car for questioning.
