Beerfest shooter remanded to prison

A teenager who police said was responsible for a shooting at a Beerfest event two weeks ago, which left two men injured, was remanded to prison when he appeared in court today.

Julian Omari Cave, 19, of Parish Land, St George, was not allowed bail charges of wounding with intent, endangering life and using a firearm without a valid licence, when he appeared in the District “B” Magistrates’ Court.

He will return to court on September 8.

Police said that around 3 a.m. on July 26 there was an argument at Beerfest, which was held at the Glebe Playing Field, St George, which led to the shooting of victims Jamario King, 18, and Lavastin Callender, 50.

King sustained gunshot injuries to his upper body. He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he had to undergo emergency surgery. Callender sustained a wound to his stomach which was not life threatening and he sought private medical attention.
