By BBN Staff: Authorities have charged Joleel Petillo, 24, a Caye Caulker resident for shooting at a police officer on January 29, 2020.
Police constable William Woodey told police that around 2:00 p.m. he left the ITVET compound and rode from Simon Lamb Street into Mapp Street behind a dark passenger van that was driving recklessly in front of the Century 21 building.
Woodey said he began to follow the vehicle and that is when a passenger opened the left passenger door of the van and pointed something that looked like a gun at Woodey.
A single shot was heard and PC Woodey attempted to slow down but lost control of the cycle he was on. He fell onto the pavement.
Authorities say that the occupants of the van are suspects in a robbery that had occurred a short time before that encounter with the officer.
