Four men have been remanded after bail was denied by a Roseau magistrate for their alleged involvement in a shooting incident which occurred at Tarish Pit on Sunday.

Alton Eusebe of La Plaine, Shermannie Peter of Goodwill, Marvin Roberts of Mahaut and Mandella Gordon of Goodwill were slapped with a number of firearm and drug-related offenses when they appeared before Chief Magistrate Evelina Baptiste this morning.

The charges are: possession of a 12-guage shot gun without the appropriate license, possession of 11 live rounds of 12-guage shot gun ammunition, the possession of a prohibited sawed off 12-guage shot gun, possession of cannabis, and possession of 11 rounds of live 12-guage shot gun ammunition on the La Plaine Public Road without a license (Alton Eusebe).

Gordon pleaded guilty to two of the possession of firearm charges, while Eusebe pleaded guilty to the possession of cannabis.

All the defendants pleaded not guilty to all other charges.

The men will reappear at court on December 30 for their bail to be reviewed.

There are reports emerging from Tarish Pit that men went on a ‘shooting spree’ in the community last weekend.

More details later.
