(CNS) Police announced this morning that a 26-year-old man has now been charged with murder, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm in relation to a West Bay shooting last year. As a result of the new RCIPS policy of not revealing the identity of those charged with crimes the man has not been named. The charges are in connection with the fatal shooting of Marcus Ebanks on Bonaventure Road in West Bay almost one year ago. Two other young men were injured in the same incident which occurred on 7 July– 15 year old Adrian Powell who was 14 at the time is now paralyzed as a result of his injuries and Ebanks’ younger teenage brother also received a gunshot wound.

On the night of the shooting the young men were reportedly chatting outside a house before masked gunmen burst from the bushes and opened fire.
 The incident was one of six fatal shootings of young men in Grand Cayman during 2009 and believed to be a gang related killing.
