On Friday, December 17, 2017, a relative of Russell Hyde Jr., shooting victim, along with another man were charged in connection to the shooting of Hyde. The men are 24-year-old Rasheed Hyde, butcher and Cayo resident, and the victim’s cousin, and Michael Mendoza, Rasheed Hyde’s father. At the end of their bail application, they were granted bail. At their bail application, they were represented by attorneys Herbert Panton and Leeroy Banner.

In court, there was no objection to bail by the crown representative Senior Crown Counsel Sheneiza Smith. The crown’s only concern was the manner in which Hyde was shot and asked that bail be set at a substantial amount and with conditions.

According to police, the young business man was lured to a location in Santa Elena on Sunday, December 3, 2017 where he was ambushed and shot multiple times to the body.

At the end of both applications which were heard before Justice Adolph Lucas, they were each granted bail in the sum of $10,000 plus one surety of the same amount with conditions. They were ordered to report to the San Ignacio Police Station starting Friday, December 22, 2017 as well as to attend all court adjournments set by the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court. They were also instructed not to interfere with the victim or any of the prosecution witnesses and to remain at least 100 yards away from the victim.

Both accused persons were arraigned on Monday, December 11, 2017 in the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court on the offenses of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, and dangerous harm with intent to cause wounding. Mendoza was charged with the offense of abetment to murder as he is accused of giving a gun to Rasheed Hyde which was allegedly used to shoot Russell Hyde Jr.
