By BBN Staff: Belize City cops have charged Leroy Thomas Bardalez, 20, with ‘attempted murder’, ‘use of deadly means of harm’ and ‘wounding’.
His charges come on the heels of a shooting which left Melroy Pelayo, 19, injured.
Pelayo told police that during the blackout last Friday night, he and friends were walking on Rio Bravo Crescent.
That was when two men on separate bicycles rode up to them and one pulled out a firearm and opened fire, hitting him to the body.
He was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a stable condition.
