Barry Johnson

A third person linked to an alleged gun assault that occurred back in August was arraigned this morning before Magistrate Ladonna John. Belize City resident Barry Johnson was charged with Aggravated Assault with a Firearm upon Delbert Palacio. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded to the prison until October twenty-sixth, 2015. Two other persons have already been charged for the same incident. They are: Lloyd Leslie Junior and Dwayne Evelyn. In the incident, a sixteen year old minor was shot at the Queen Square Primary School compound and he too has been charged at the Family Court. The police believe that the group was playing with a gun which malfunctioned. According to Senior Superintendent Chester Williams, the minor remains hospitalized under police guard at the K.H.M.H.   Reports are that Evelyn, Leslie Junior and the minor were waiting in a dark area for Palacio with whom they had a previous misunderstanding. When they targeted him, one of them was shot.
