Brandon “BT” Tillett, 28, remanded on attempted murder charge

Brandon “BT” Tillett, 28, who claims to be a car dealer of #100 George Street, was remanded to prison after he was arraigned on attempted murder and related charges before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith on Monday.

Tillett was also charged with use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm against Kevin Alvarez.

Chief Magistrate Smith remanded Tillett until February 27, when he is to return to court.

According to police, Kevin Alvarez, 19, a construction worker and resident of Supal Street, reported to them that he was standing on a bridge on George Street, around 9:05 p.m., when a man rode up on a beach cruiser bicycle, pointed a handgun at him and fired several shots.

One of the assailant’s bullets caught Alvarez in the left leg. Alvarez was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted in a stable condition.

Police reported that they recovered five .9mm expended shells from the scene.

Alvarez was able to identify Tillett in a police identification parade.
