By Breaking Belize News Staff: Kenyon Tillett and Tarique Shamar James, who were charged for a shooting incident in May 2022 behind the ICON call center building on Newtown Barracks, had three criminal charges withdrawn against them, leaving only a charge of discharging a firearm in public to answer for.

In court, on Wednesday, the prosecution withdrew two counts of aggravated assault and one count of wounding against the two accused. That leaves only a charge of discharging a firearm in public for the men to answer for.

Their attorney, Richard “Dickie” Bradley also argued that the remaining charge should also be dismissed since the complainants in the case are not requesting any further court action. The sitting Magistrate, however, said it is the crown’s case and that they are prepared to commence with the trial. The prosecutor asked for an adjournment to prepare for the trial, which was granted.

The case stems from a shooting incident with involved City Councilor Micah Goodin, in which one man was shot and received minor injuries.
