Cayman27 reports that when Christopher Solomon gave evidence in the Devon Anglin trial he said he did not even realize he had been shot until a few minutes later when he collapsed outside the West Bay road night club. Anglin, from West Bay, is facing charges for murder over the shooting of Webster and the attempted murder of Solomon who was also hit during the incident.  (Photo courtesy of Cayman27)

In its opening statement the prosecution had revealed that Solomon was believed to have been injured by a bullet that had first passed through the forearm of Webster as the gunman, who the crown says is Anglin, shot at him three times.

The crown has only one eye-witness who claims to have seen the actual shooting but it has a second witness who says they saw Anglin armed with a gun leaving the club seconds after the killing. The identities of both have been protected and the witnesses gave evidence via a voice altered audio link.

The crown says that the combination of the eyewitness accounts, evidence on CCTV and the fact that Anglin was seen by several witnesses to be involved in a fight with Webster in the club only minutes before the shooting combine to prove that he was Webster’s killer.

Cayman27 said the crown began wrapping up its case against Anglin on Wednesday after the lead investigator on the murder, former Chief Inspector Peter Kennett, testified how he had identified Anglin on the CCTV footage from the club on the night Webster was killed. The crown’s remaining witness is a forensic video expert who is expected in court Thursday.
