Aldo Alvarez denied bond

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Aldo Alvarez, the mentally challenged man shot by a Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy, was denied bond Thursday morning.

Alvarez will have another hearing in a couple of weeks. At that time, his attorney will have another opportunity to request bond. "This is not what we wanted. We wanted Aldo to come home," Alvarez's mother Anna Alvarez said after the hearing.

According to police reports, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Joshua McGehee shot Alvarez when he says he was attacked in his driveway.

Alvarez and McGehee live on the same street.

"Aldo would never hurt anyone. He is not violent and likes all deputies," Aldo's father Raul Alvarez said after court.

Raul Alvarez says his son suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.
