Two men were remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison on Monday, after they appeared in the St John’s Magistrate’s Court to answer a number of charges.
Police said that Timothy Kirby, 26, of Sutherlands and Marcel Parker of Perry Bay, also 26, were both denied bail when they appeared before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh, charged with three counts of attempted murder; three counts of shooting with intent to murder; possession of an unlicensed firearm; possession of ammunition; larceny of a goat, and the unlawful and malicious damage committed to a goat.
It is alleged that around 4:45 pm last Friday, both men were spotted near Galley Bay shooting at a flock of goats with guns.
The goats are owned by a livestock farmer of Five Islands, and he, along with his son and a friend were also shot at when they made an attempt to approach the area.
Kirby and Parker reportedly fled in a grey Kia Rio motorcar A36056, which the police later found abandoned in some nearby bushes. Kirby was found hiding not far from where the incident had occurred, and was arrested and taken into custody.
A dead goat was also removed from the scene with what appeared to be a bullet wound to its side. Further investigations are being conducted into the matter. Committal proceedings are set for September 7, 2017.
