Third man charged with City shooting

COURT TODAY BLOCKA third man has been charged in connection with last Friday’s shooting near the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal which has left Rashawn Alexander hospitalized in critical condition.

Shaquon Joseph, 17, of Hinds Gap, Halls Road, St Michael, was remanded to prison when he appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today. He was charged with using unlawful violence along with two others, and that their conduct was such that it would cause anyone present at the scene to fear for their personal safety.

Joseph was not required to plead to the indictable offence.

In his objection to bail, Acting Station Sergeant Junior Kirton mentioned the seriousness of the matter and the fact that the alleged incident had created “mass confusion in civil society”.

He said he also feared that if Joseph was granted bail, his behaviour would continue since a gun allegedly used had not yet been found.

Kirton also reminded the court that Alexander was still in critical condition at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, with paralysis to one side and injury to his lungs.

However, Joseph’s attorney Allan Carter pointed out that his client was 17 years old, had no convictions or outstanding matters in the court.

“The prosecution has not shown that he will interfere with witnesses, or run away and not face his charges,” he added.

“The prosecution’s beliefs do not measure up to what the law requires (in refusing bail).

”However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick denied Joseph bail, remanding him until March 11.
