Deon Brackett is Remanded to Prison for Attempted Murder of Raheem Bailey

Deon Brackett

A Belize City man has been remanded for the attempted murder of Raheem Bailey last Friday. Bailey was the first of five persons injured during four separate shootings in the city. And today, twenty-three-year-old Deon Brackett was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith. This morning, Brackett, who walked from a murder in 2013, appeared in court unrepresented and was slapped with three criminal offenses: attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm.  No plea was taken on the indictable charges and Brackett was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until April eighteenth, 2016. Allegations are that just before seven on Friday night, nineteen-year-old Bailey was at home with a friend on Allan Pitts Crescent when a man rode up on a bicycle and unleashed a hail of bullets at them from about twenty feet away. Bailey was hit in the chest and both thighs; he was rushed to the K.H.M.H. where he is listed in a stable condition.
