Two remanded for minibus shooting

Two young men accused of committing a brazen shooting aboard a minibus on Saturday morning, leaving a teenager fighting for his life, will spend the Christmas season behind bars as they await their trial.

Jerome Antonio Stuart, 20, of 8th Avenue, New Orleans, St Michael and Akeele Jerome St Hill, 19, of 6th  Avenue, New Orleans, St Michael were remanded to HMP Dodds when they appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.

Stuart, who was represented by attorney Andrew Willoughby, and St Hill, who had Angela Mitchell-Gittens as his counsel, are charged with unlawfully wounding Shamar Victor Corbin on December 3, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him, or to do some serious bodily harm to him.

They are also accused of using a 9mm pistol while committing the indictable offence of wounding with intent.

The two were not required to plead to the offence.

A release earlier today from the Royal Barbados Police Force said Corbin, of 3rd Avenue, Bush Hall, St Michael was shot multiple times in the chest while on a minibus. He was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance, where he is still warded in “stable but critical condition”.

Stuart, who faced three additional charges of possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cannabis, pleaded not guilty to these offences.

The two are scheduled to reappear at the District ‘A’ Criminal Court on January 6, 2017.

    Upwards of 100 million dollars to the white people for shutting down agriculture in Barbados and not giving Black People a chance to sweat for a living.
    With all of that free money there is Zero need for white people to leave home to hustle for a living.
    Of course you are forcing the young, strong, well educated (unharnessed) productive Afrikan Males to raise an army.
    You of course will only become aware when they knock on your own door.
    Of course I lie: you have already proposed to maintain hanging as punishment for crime committed against a member of the political establishment, the judiciary and a few of your “privileged class” friends.

    Its time for the powers at be to revisit the Bail Act when it come to bail for fire arm offences. it should be, “NO BAIL” , and the time spent on remand should not be deducted from the sentence. make the law loud and clear with out any “LOOP HOLES”. if these guys are “BAD MAN” let them rot in jail.

    The attorneys representing these gun men I hope don’t have children because I am certain such won’t be the case if one of those shots have injured a child of theirs or family member. Yet under such criminal acts for the cost of money they serve their souls to the devil to represent evil men.
