Christian Espat, the 21-year-old accused by police of trying to kill two minors, is behind bars because at his bail application on Friday, August 18, 2017, there was objection to bail by Crown Counsel Jacqueline Willoughby. His application will be heard again on August 25, 2017.

Late August 14, 2017, the resident of the San Pedrito area, San Pedro was arraigned and remanded to the Belize Central Prison without bail after he appeared before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court.

Before the magistrate, he was read 7 criminal and indictable offenses, 2 counts of attempted murder, 3 counts of use of deadly means of harm with a firearm, and 2 counts of dangerous harm which was committed on primary school students, 12-year-old Armando Hernandez and 9-year-old Jaheem Martinez, and 27-year-old Lloyd Tyndall.

The allegations are that the victims were socializing at Easy Does It A-and-A Woodwork Shop in the San Pedrito area when a lone gunman opened fire indiscriminately releasing a barrage of bullets. As a result, the party of three all received injuries.
