City Residents who Shots Cops Remanded

Phillip Bowen

Two police officers on motorcycle patrol over the weekend were shot at, but fortunately the gunman missed his targets. But the alleged shooter, Phillip Bowen, ran out of luck when the vehicle he and another person were travelling in, collided into a nearby drain. He appeared in court today to answer to two charges of Aggravated Assault upon officers, Anson Simpson and Argazavad Sankey. He was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until end of August, 2015. The two officers were shot in the wee hours of June twenty-eighth, 2015 while at the corner of Central American Boulevard and Mahogany Street. There, they came across a speeding taxi that refused to be pulled over. The vehicle turned into the Antelope Street Extension where the cops intercepted it and saw two men inside. The police claim that the passenger pulled out a pistol and fired a single shot in their direction, but missed. The vehicle then sped off, but ended into a nearby drain, and the occupants fled the scene.   When police searched the vehicle they found live rounds of nine millimeter ammunition along with a cell phone which led police to Bowen. The driver of the vehicle is still at large.
