By Anita Nembhard-Flowers (Court Reporter): Accused shooter Kenyon Carlton Flores, 20, of Green Street, Belama Phase Four, Belize City has been remanded on two indictable offences and a violation of the Quarantine Regulations.

Flores appeared before Magistrate Stephanie Gillett, where he was read one count of attempted murder on Shemar Kelly; one count of use of deadly means of harm on Kelly, and one count of failing to practice social distancing.

Flores pleaded guilty to being at a residence elsewhere than his own on Lakeview Street and was fined $500 to be paid by February 28, 2021, in default six months’ imprisonment.

The more serious charges concern his alleged attack on Kelly, who told police that he and another man were walking on Lakeview Street toward Vernon Street when upon reaching the corner with an unnamed alleyway, he heard the sound of apparent gunshots and then felt a burning sensation to his back. Kelly said he looked back toward Banak Street and recognized Flores as his alleged attacker. Flores was detained days later.

For the indictable offences, Magistrate Gillett took no plea from him and told him that due to the nature of the offences, bail was denied and he was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until February 23, 2021.
