No arrest has been made for last weekend’s shooting incidents that took place in Ladyville Village; however, police believe they have solved a shooting incident that occurred on the night of February 16th.

According to police report, Alfred Smith and Gregory Goodfellow were on the Ladyville basketball court when they had an argument which led to a fistfight. Goodfellow then left the area but returned with a shotgun. According to Smith, he had just moved his head when he heard a loud bang. He then realized that he was shot at but was missed. Smith escaped unharmed.

Police arrested Goodfellow over the weekend. On Monday he was escorted to the Belize City Magistrates Court where he was read a single charge of aggravated assault with a firearm upon Alfred Smith. In court, Goodfellow pleaded not guilty to the charge. No bail was granted since the offense was committed with a firearm. He will be remanded at the Belize Central Prison until his next court appearance on May 20th.

Gregory Goodfellow is no stranger to police. He has a string of charges pending against him before the court, including robbery. He was out on bail at the time of his arrest. Smith, the alleged victim, is one of six men who were arrested and charged with drug trafficking on Monday, March 24th, after police raided a yard following a shooting incident in the village.
