2nd carnival suspect charged

| 09/05/2014

(CNS): Police have now charged a second man in connection with a shooting incident on the streets of George Town last Saturday evening during the Batabano Carnival. Although no one was hurt at least one live round, recovered from a tree in the area of Dr Roy’s Drive and Edwards Street, was fired on the crowded street where the carnival parade had passed just a short time before. The second unnamed 26 year old man arrested in connection with the shooting was expected to appear in court on Friday afternoon charged with attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm following his arrest some four days after the incident, on Wednesday.

The first man charged was Todd Bowen (29) from Prospect who has also been charged with attempted murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and the unlawful use of a firearm. Police seized a gun from Bowen’s home which is understood to have been licensed to a member of his family but police have not yet confirmed if this was the weapon used during the street incident.

Anyone that thinks they can help with information regarding the discharging of the weapon is asked to contact DCI Kay or DC Andrew Graham at the George Town CID at 949-4222, or to remain anonymous to call Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).
