Father accidentally shoots baby

A four month old baby was accidentally shot by the father with a pellet gun after 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 8th in Gales Point Village.
Tyreeka Welch, 18, reported that her common-law husband and father of her baby, entered their bedroom to get his pellet gun. Not realizing that the safety was off, the gun fired off, causing injury to their four month old baby.
Baby Dwehene was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital and later to the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital in Belize City for treatment.
(The Reporter’s Breaking News post erroneously reported the baby to be two weeks old and from Dangriga. We apologize for the error.)
