Aaron Bailey, 23, charged with the shooting murder of Gary Pratt, 28 Pratt may have been shot by mistake

Aaron Bailey, 23, a carpenter of Neal Pen Road, was arraigned this afternoon for the shooting murder of Gary Pratt, 28, which occurred on Antelope Street Extension.

According to police, on October 4, a little after 10:00 p.m., they visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where they saw the lifeless body of Pratt.

Pratt, originally from Punta Gorda, was shot twice in the back and succumbed to his injuries, but police believe that the bullets that found their marks on Pratt were meant for someone else.

Bailey was unrepresented when he appeared in court today, and since the charge is an indictable offense, no plea was taken from him and neither could he be offered bail.

He was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until his next adjournment date, scheduled for November 28, 2013.

If Bailey’s name or face seems familiar, it’s because he was recently acquitted of three firearm-related offenses after he and five other persons had been charged.
