BELIZE CITY, Mon. Apr. 12, 2010
On Monday, police escorted a 15-year-old minor to the Magistrates Court where he stood before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and was read charges of two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Allegations are that on Friday, April 9, Ernesto Perez and Lyndon Jeffery were inside a parked Altima car on King Street when a gun man opened fire at them. The gunman missed Perez and Jeffery but damaged the car.
Police are looking for more suspects in the case as they believe that the crime was committed by a group of men. One of those suspects has a number of shooting related cases pending before the court.
