24-Count Murder Indictment in Caribbean Festival Shooting

A Grand Jury yesterday returned a 24-count indictment against Terry Jimenez, Deonte Bryant, and Terrance Bush, including charges of first-degree murder, assault with intent to kill, and aggravated assault.

Jimenez, Bryant, and Bush are expected to be arraigned on the charges Friday morning, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office said.

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.

In addition to the murder and assault charges, it also includes various weapons charges related to possessing, carrying, and using weapons without licenses.
