Arrests made in murder, shooting

Story PicturePolice have arrested two people in connection with separate shootings late last week that left one man dead and another fighting for his life. Twenty year old Kenneth Dobson is accused of shooting to death twenty-three year old Jermaine Barrow last Friday afternoon. According to police reports, Barrow was hanging out at the corner of Kut Avenue and Tanoomah Street when Dobson rode up on a bicycle and shot him in the left side of his head. Dobson was read a single charge of murder when he appeared in Belize City magistrate’s court today and was remanded to Hattieville prison until his next court appearance.

Meanwhile, a second suspect has been charged in connection with the shooting of Marlon Fisher, who was seriously wounded last Thursday in the vicinity of West Street. Twenty two year old Leonard Myers has been charged for the crimes of attempted murder and dangerous harm. Myers joins Sheldon Tillett who was previously charged in connection with the same shooting. Fisher remains hospitalized at the KHMH in serious condition with gunshot wounds to the chest, arm and leg.
