Brangman guilty of attempted murder

Quincy Brangman, 32, has been found guilty of attempted murder after shooting footballer Nathan Darrell at close range.

Brangman was also found guilty of using a firearm to commit an indictable offence in relation to the incident on Kitchener Close, Sandys, in the early hours of February 13.

Mr Darrell, 23, was sitting in a car outside his home rolling a joint when Brangman walked up to the window of his car and shot him three times, leaving him with life-threatening wounds to his neck, chest and thigh.

The former Ireland Rangers player took the witness stand during the trial to testify against Brangman, saying he got a good look at his face before he opened fire.

The verdicts against Brangman said by Police to be a member of the gang Money Over B**tches came after **** hours of deliberation by the jury.

He will be sentenced at a later date.

Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro, from the Serious Crime Unit, said of Mr Darrell, who testified against Brangman: “He was brave enough to come forward and give evidence and is shooter has been convicted. That speaks volumes for Mr Darrell. It was said he was no angel but no-one has the right to try to take someone's life.”

Praising the detectives in his team for their hard work, he added: “It was a case in which we felt we presented strong evidence to the jury and they've come back and accepted that.”

Guilty: Quincy Brangman
