Two La Penitence residents who sent their neighbourhood into fear last Monday as shots rang out in the area, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer to two separate charges.
One of the men was remanded to prison for discharging a loaded firearm, while the other was placed on $60,000 bail from chopping the man who discharged the firearm at him.
One charge read that on May 8th at East La Penitence, 23-year-old, Colin Daly, with the intent to maim, disfigure or cause grievous bodily harm, dealt Reon Jonus several chops about his body.
The other charge read that on the same day in question 19-year-old, Reon Jonas, discharged a loaded firearm at Colin Daly,with the intent maim, disfigure and cause grievous bodily hard.
Reports indicate that Jonas went to the home of Daly and confronted him while being armed with a gun.
He allegedly discharged several rounds in the man’s direction, causing a bullet to graze the man on the arm.
In return, Colin Daly armed himself with a cutlass and dealt his attacker several chops on the arm.
The confrontation was reportedly over a quantity of marijuana.
The magistrate refused bail to Reon Jonas for the firearm charge, but Colin Daly was granted $60,000 bail on the cutlass attack charge.
Both men will return to court later this month.
