A George Street associate has been identified as the man who fired four shots at Germaine Zuniga in the San Mateo’s area of San Pedro Town on Monday, August 18.

According to police reports, Zuniga was riding his bicycle in the San Mateo area around 7:55 p.m. when he saw Jason Gillett, also known as Killa, with whom he has had an old dispute. According to Zuniga, Gillett pulled out what appeared to be a chrome nine millimeter firearm and fired four shots in his direction. Fortunately for Zuniga, the shots missed. Zuniga made a report to police and Gillett was arrested and charged.

Late Monday evening, August 25, police escorted Gillett to the Belize City Magistrates Court where he appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith. Gillett was unrepresented and pleaded not guilty to a single count of aggravated assault with a firearm. Due to the nature of the offense, he was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until his next court appearance on October 7.
