Man denies attempted murder

A Pembroke man this morning denied allegations of attempted murder and two firearms charges.

Appearing in Supreme Court, Gavaska Lodge-Bascome, 22, pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, using a firearm to commit an indictable offence and unlawfully handling a firearm.

All of the offences allegedly took place in Pembroke on May 1.

Other than his pleas, Mr Lodge-Bascome remained silent throughout proceedings.

Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons remanded Mr Lodge-Bascome into custody until the July arraignments session, when the matter is set to return to the courts to be mentioned.
