He has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
Police said that Luna was driving his vehicle on Macal River Street in the Louisiana area of Orange Walk Town when a person shot at him at about 9:00 last night. One of the bullets grazed his leg, Luna told police, who processed the scene and recovered seven 9mm expended shells.
Luna was treated at the Orange Walk Hospital and later released.
Police’s investigation of the incident led to the arrest of the 17-year-old youth.
