Suspect released over Ming shooting

| 07/04/2010

(CNS): Police confirmed on Tuesday that one of the two men arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of Damion Omar Ming (left) has been released on bail.  Ming who was gunned down close to his home in Birch Tree Hill Road, West Bay last month was laid to rest over the weekend. News 27 reports that friends and family gathered at the Wesleyan Holiness Church in West Bay on Saturday (3 April) to pay their final respects to the 29-year-old who was the 5th murder victim of 2010. One man remains in police custody in connection with Ming’s shooting but no charges have been made.

Meanwhile, the man accused of shooting a woman in broad daylight last month also appeared in court on Tuesday morning. 32-year-old Royden Robinson is charged with attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm.  The charges followed a police operation in the George Town area last week Friday (2 April). 
Robinson claims he had nothing to do with the shooting but it’s alleged he shot a woman in the face at Barnes Plaza.  She sustained serious injuries and was hospitalised for several weeks though police confirm she has now been released. Robinson has been remanded to Northward Prison and is due to appear in court 13 April
