18 year old charged for Tuesday’s shooting on Victoria Street

Shaquille Meighan

We have reported on a rash of shootings, all gang related, in which nine persons were injured.  It all happened in Belize City between Saturday and Tuesday. As investigations continue, police have made one arrest in respect of Tuesday’s shooting on Victoria Street where fortunately no one was injured. An eighteen-year-old former student from Wesley College, Shaquille Meighan was charged for aggravated assault with a firearm.  Meighan is no stranger to the law, but because he was a minor before now, his name could not be released. In court, he was read a single count of aggravated assault against Maurice Middleton.   Due to the nature of the offense, Meighan was informed that he could not be granted bail and that he will be remanded to the Belize Central Prison until July fifth. Allegations are that Meighan targeted Middleton but missed him. The shooting on Victoria Street occurred less than seven hours after Rafael Cruz, a resident of the Mayflower Street area, known also as Ghost Town, was shot on Vernon Street.
