KINGMAN – Timothy Joseph Bell, charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon-dangerous instrument, has a pretrial conference set for 3:30 p.m. Aug. 8 in Mohave County Superior Court before Judge Richard Weiss.
The state may also look to add assisting a criminal street gang to Bell’s charges, in addition to charging two others who may have been involved in the incident, one of whom is a minor, with the same.
Bell was arrested after police responded to a call at about 10:20 p.m. March 22. They arrived at the scene to find a 16-year-old boy with hand and leg wounds resulting from multiple gunshots. Bell and another suspect, 16-year-old Angel Miguel Bravo, were arrested after being found not far from the scene around the 3800 block of North Willow Road.
The 16-year-old who suffered gunshot wounds was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Arizona Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission is in charge of the investigation. Bell has entered a plea of not guilty and is being held without bond at Mohave County jail.
As a matter of policy the Daily Miner generally does not identify juveniles involved in crimes. In this case it is because Bravo is being charged as an adult.
