Terry Jimenez Held in Caribbean Festival Shooting

It was six weeks ago that Terry Jimenez first appeared in front of Judge William Jackson for a preliminary hearing in the second-degree murder case that accuses him of killing a man in armed urban warfare. On Friday that hearing was completed, and Jimenez was ordered held.

Relying on video evidence presented on July 29, as well as cross-examination of MPD Detective Charles Fultz which was completed Friday, Jackson found probable cause in the case against Jimenez.

Jimenez’s case is joined with two co-defendants, Deonte Bryant and Terrance Bush, who are also being held on substantial probability.

Prosecutors believe that Bryant and Bush exchanged gunfire with Jimenez following the Caribbean Festival on June 25. Three people, including Jimenez, were injured in the exchange. Robert Foster Jr, described as an innocent bystander out to enjoy the festivities, was killed. Charging documents allege a gang beef that put Jimenez at odds with Bryant and Bush.
