This morning, Albert Moody, 25, a resident of Jane Usher Boulevard, was arraigned on two counts of attempted murder, two counts of use of deadly means of harm and two counts of dangerous harm when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith.
According to police investigations, at 11:45 p.m. on October 20, Elroy Perdomo, 18, of Kraal Road, and Steven Lambey, 26, of Reggae Street, were riding on separate bicycles on Central American Boulevard toward the Port of Belize when they heard what sounded like shots being fired.
After hearing the sounds, both men told police that they felt a burning sensation, and realized that they had been shot – Perdomo in his left ankle and the left side of his buttocks, and Lambey in his right calf and the right side of his abdomen.
No pleas were taken from Moody, because the charges are indictable and will be heard in the Supreme Court. He could not be offered any bail due to the nature of the charge, and was remanded to prison, but should be returned to court on December 13, 2013 for his adjournment.
