Man held in Heritage Square Lotto booth shooting

The man who is charged with shooting two persons at Heritage Square last Thursday will be remanded for a week, while the court keeps an eye on the serious injuries of his alleged victims.

Kishron Jackson of Rockies was charged when he was brought before the Serious Offences Court yesterday, that he, on March 15 at Heritage Square, with intent to commit the offence of murder on Veron Williams of Kingstown and Errol Hinson of Enhams, did an act which was more than merely preparatory.

He is also charged that he did agree with another person, in the same place, and on the same date, that “a course of conduct shall be pursued, which if the agreement was carried out in accordance with their intention, would involve the commission of the offence of robbery.”

Jackson used crutches to enter the dock, as his right leg was in a cast.

Prosecutor Adolphus Delplesche objected to bail for the defendant, as Williams and Hinson are still warded at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH).

“Lead, from an alleged gunshot, are still lodged in them,” he stated, noting that a team of doctors was working the best they could to administer medical treatment to the two victims.

While their situation is monitored and until it is sure that the victims are not getting worse, the prosecutor asked that the accused be remanded.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias chose to deny bail to Jackson until next Monday, when the court will reconsider after hearing the prognosis.(KR)
