Second man charged in Somerset shootings

A 23-year-old man has appeared in court charged with shooting four men outside Somerset Cricket Club.

Shantoine Prinston Burrows, of Benny Bay Road, Sandys, was charged with unlawfully shooting Gladstone Wade, Denzell Crockwell, Lorenzo Dill and Kirt Brown Jr with intent to cause grievous bodily harm

He was further charged with possessing a firearm and possessing ammunition. According to the charges, all six offences occurred on November 11 this year.

Another man, 29-year-old Germiko Williams, was charged in connection to the same incident last month. Because the matters must be heard by the Supreme Court, neither man has been required to enter a plea.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Mr Burrows into custody until December 12 when the matter will return to the Magistrates' Court to be mentioned.
