A man accused of shooting another near a popular bar has finally been served his case file and now expects his committal hearing to take place next month after several adjournments since last year.
On June 26 last year, 27-year-old Brandon Murphy and 19-year-old Jhonte Meade got into an argument on lower All Saints Road before Murphy drove off in his car, then apparently turned around and fired a shot in Meade’s direction.
The alleged incident occurred around 5.50am near the Diamond Edge Night Club.
Shortly after the incident, Murphy was taken into custody by the police for questioning.
The lawmen reportedly found gunshot residue on Murphy’s person and also in his car.
Murphy, of Point, was subsequently charged with shooting with intent to murder.
The defendant has made more than three appearances in the St John’s Magistrate’s Court, but the prosecution was never ready to proceed with the committal.
Yesterday, he was told that on April 3 he will finally find out if there is sufficient evidence against him to send his case to be heard by a High Court judge.
