Accused gunmen remanded

Committal proceedings are scheduled for October 7 for the two Grays Farm men accused of shooting with intent to murder a fellow villager.

Yesterday, one week after 31-year-old Glentis Vernon Davis also know as Bem, and 26-year-old Stephan Bannis, both of Christian Street Grays Farm, allegedly fired shots at Bobby Thomas, the men were taken before the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court where Magistrate Conliffe Clarke remanded them to Her Majesty’s Prison.

The men still have the option to secure bail in the High Court for the offences of shooting with intent to murder, discharging a firearm in a public place, possession of a firearm when not the holder of a firearm users license, and possession of ammunition when not the holder of a firearm users license.

Thomas was injured in the shooting.

The men were jointly charged following the July 4 shooting that occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m. on Christian Street, Grays Farm.

Police had issued a public appeal for assistance in locating the shooters, and the investigation quickly led lawmen to both accused.
