– Charged with felonious wounding and discharging a loaded firearm
Jermaine Langevine, 31, of 21 John and Hadfield Streets, Werk-en-Rust was placed on $500,000 bail yesterday after he appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson to be read two indictable charges.
On September 22, last, the accused, who is the proprietor of the White Castle Fish Shop was accused of maliciously causing grievous bodily harm to Oriley Small. He was also charged with discharging a loaded firearm. Small was unable to attend court.
Representing the accused was Attorney at Law, Gordon Gilhuys, who told the court, “My client suffers from serious head injuries according to Dr. Amir of Woodlands Hospital. He is not a flight risk, is well known, and he has denied the allegations made against him.”
According to police prosecutor Edmond Cooper “the matter is still being investigated”.
The accused is expected to return to court on October 6.
Langevine is jointly charged with Mark Goodridge. The prosecution said that he will face other charges later.
The charges against Langevine and Goodridge stemmed from the shooting outside the National Gymnasium on Mandela Avenue that saw four teenagers and one adult hospitalized with gunshot wounds on September 22.
The shooting reportedly occurred after a bet of $100,000 on a football match. The bet was made between Jermaine Langevine and Oriley Small. The deal however went sour after the player upon whom the wager was reportedly placed, Vibert Weekes, was issued a red card and sent out of the game.
