Tareek Ricardo Ricketts (21) appeared  in court Christmas Eve to face one count of murder and one count of possession of an unlicensed firearm in connection with the first fatal shooting of the year. Ricketts is accused of shooting Rainford multiple times as he sat in a car in the Printer’s Way area on Sunday 16 December at around 10:30.
