Eighteen year old faces charge of Attempted Murder

Story PictureAnd a charge of Attempted Murder and six other offences were placed on eighteen year old Cameron Blease when he appeared in Court today. The other charges include Dangerous Harm, Use of Deadly Means of Harm and four counts of Aggravated Assault. Chief Magistrate Margaret McKenzie explained to Blease that she cannot take a plea from him because the offences are indictable, neither could she offer him bail. She remanded Blease into custody until August twenty-ninth.

The incident occurred around ten o’clock p.m. on Sunday, July twenty-seventh when Lucretia Myvett, a twenty-one year old domestic worker of Sibun Street, reported to the police that she was standing in front of her yard when Blease came from behind and fired several shots in her direction. Myvett said she threw herself into a nearby drain and that was when Blease shot her in the upper left arm. A police mobile patrol was in the area and it responded quickly enough to see the gunman running away. The officers reported that as the gunman ran he fired two shots at them before he escaped. The occupants of the vehicle at the time were police constables Maron Chacon and Elvis Fernandez and B.D.F. privates Ian Young and Isaias Camara. As he exited the court today, Blease said he will blow up Belize one day. The young man has a history of criminal charges since he was a minor.
