Police have arrested and charged 2 minors. In regards to the latest murder of 23-year-old Derrick King, police have also made arrests but still are unsure of what the motive was.

ACP Alejandro Cowo, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch, Belize City: “For the fatal shooting of Derrick King which occurred on Tuesday police arrested and charged four persons for murder and three of them for conspiracy to commit murder. They are Randy Green, Paul Smith, Charles Milton and Luciano Novelo all of a Taylor’s Alley address.”

Reporter: Can you confirm then sir that Mr.King was in fact the target of that shooting then or was he caught in the crossfire as was previously reported?

ACP Alejandro Cowo, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch, Belize City:  “We suspect now after we have gathered evidence that he was the intended target.”

Within half an hour, the men were all escorted into court before Senior Magistrate, Aretha Ford. Inside the courtroom, only Middleton was represented by attorney, Ronell Gonzalez, while the others were unrepresented. They were all jointly charged with conspiracy to commit murder while Smith alone was charged with the murder of Derrick King. Inside the courtroom, the men were only read the charges and no plea was taken from them since the offenses were indictable.  Due to the nature of the offenses, no bail could be granted and they were all remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until May 18.
