Belize City man charged for shooting at police officers

A man accused of shooting in the direction of three police officers on Friday night near the Princess Hotel was charged today in Magistrate?s Court. Deshawn White was arraigned before Magistrate Sharon Fraser on three counts of attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, one count of carrying an unlicensed firearm, and one count of unlicensed ammunition. Since it is an indictable offence White was remanded to prison until December fifteenth. Police report that three officers, Joel Grinage, William Usher, and Mannon Dennison arrested White shortly after the young man fired a shot in their direction. A nine millimetre gun and ammunition were recovered at the scene. White’s family claims he was merely throwing away the gun and it accidentally went off when it hit the ground.
