Defendants in Caribbean Festival Shooting Plead Innocent to all Charges

Three men, Terry Jimenez, Deonte Bryant, and Terrance Bush, pled not guilty Friday morning to charges stemming from a June shooting that killed Robert Foster Jr.

The three are facing charges of first-degree murder, assault with intent to kill, and aggravated assault. They are also charged with various weapons charges related to possessing, carrying, and using weapons without licenses.

Prosecutors believe that Bryant and Bush exchanged gunfire with Jimenez following the Caribbean Festival on June 25 last year. Three people, including Jimenez, were injured in the exchange. Foster, 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.

All three men are scheduled to be back in court for a status hearing on June 8.
