Attempted murder charge discontinued

Following a preliminary inquiry into the charge of attempted murder, defendant Damion Omar Ming was discharged last week.

Ming had been charged following a shooting incident at Hell Road, West Bay, on the night of 30 March. He had also been accused of being in possession of an automatic rifle with intent to commit an indictable offence.

Crown Counsel Toyin Salako applied to discontinue proceedings after the complainant under oath was no longer able to identify Ming as the shooter.

There were no eye witnesses to the incident and no forensic evidence.

Magistrate Grace Donalds accordingly discharged the defendant.

Ming, 23, first appeared in court on 6 April. He was bailed the following week, after a successful application by Defence Attorney David McGrath.
