Moses GonguezPolice has charged Moses Gonguez with the attempted murder of  Nelson Kareem Bowen, a resident of Sibun Street, who was shot in the thigh on Wednesday, August 10th. The shooting incident occurred in broad daylight at about 3:35 p.m. when a lone gunman rode up on a bicycle from the Canal side and opened fire at Bowen who was standing in front of his house.

Two individuals witnessed the shooting. Bowen was shot at as many as nine times but only one bullet met its target. 

On Monday, October 17th, 35-year-old Gonguez of #10 York Street was arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court. He was unrepresented when he appeared before the Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith. He is charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm upon Bowen.

No plea was taken since the matters are indictable offenses and Gonguez was ordered to be remanded at the Hattieville Prison until November 18th. Sources have said that the shooting of Bowen was over the death of his brother, Kenyon Plunkett, who was gunned down in April of this year on Banak Street. Bowen and Plunkett are brothers and while Plunkett was not a known trouble maker, Bowen is no stranger to the police and the court.
