Police Officers Cleared in Attack of City Resident a Year Ago

Kenrick Gamboa

Brother police officers twenty-eight-year-old Kenrick and twenty-four-year-old Akeem Gamboa saw charges of grievous harm against them dropped today in Magistrate’s Court. Exactly one year ago, twenty-year-old Michael Crawford, a security technician and supervisor, told police that he was attacked by the brothers and a third unidentified man in Belize City after being shot at while at a residence on the George Price Highway. According to Crawford he was targeted due to his recent engagement to a woman who previously dated Akeem. Kenrick was identified as the alleged shooter.

But in court Crawford told Magistrate Michelle Trapp that he has moved on from his former partner and now wants to move on from the case too. He said he had never wanted court action and affirmed when questioned that he was not coerced or threatened to drop the case. The Gamboas and Crawford have agreed to keep the peace and that convinced the Magistrate to dismiss the charges.
