Police Charge Teen for Shooting Near Mas Camp

A teenager who recently turned eighteen is tonight on remand at the Belize Central Prison after he was arraigned earlier for eight charges in connection with Tuesday night’s shooting near the Soca Moca Mas Camp. Charleston Green Junior, of Antelope Street Extension, faces charges of: Attempted Murder, Use of Deadly Means of Harm, Grievous Harm, Keeping Unlicensed Firearm, Keeping Unlicensed Ammunition, and three counts of Aggravated Assault. In the incident, Dixon Ramirez was shot, but police allege that Green then committed aggravated assault with the firearm upon three police officers: Corporal Keyshawn McField, Corporal Harvey Welch and Detective Constable Shaheed Franklin. No plea was taken because of the severity of the offenses. He was remanded to prison until November second. Green can apply to the Supreme Court for bail with the help of an attorney if he so wishes, until his case is called to trial. The shooting disrupted the judging of the Soca Moca Mas Camp, which was the last camp that the carnival judges were visiting on that night as part of their overall judging of carnival 2022.
