A teenager was arraigned on Friday, September 22, 2017 in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on criminal charges for the shooting in which Aaron King was the victim. He is 18-year-old Moses Anthony Babb. Babb appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Aretha Ford where he was read three criminal charges: one count of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm with a deadly weapon, and kept unlicensed firearm without being granted a gun license.

The first two charges were indictable offenses and no plea was taken from him. To the third charge, Babb pleaded not guilty. Due to the nature of the offenses, bail could not be granted and he was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until sometime in November 2017.

The incident took place on Sunday, September 17, 2017 at a house party in the Buttonwood Bay area. King and his girlfriend were socializing with another friend when two men came to the area and called for him. He was then shot as he attempted to run.
