Tobago man in court for shooting at police

A 35-year-old Calder Hall man, who shot at two off-duty police officers, in Lambeau, Tobago, on August 30, appeared before a Scarborough Magistrate on Friday last charged with shooting with intent.

In a press release, the TTPS said, Kerwin Wilson, a labourer, of Virgil Alley, Calder Hall, also faced charges of possession of firearm and possession of ammunition to endanger life, when he appeared before Magistrate Lucina Cardinas-Ragoonanan, in the Scarborough Magistrates’ Court. He was granted $150,000 bail and the matter was adjourned to October 5.

According to police, W/Supt. (Ag.) Shirley Stanley-Caruth had just completed personal business on August 30, and was seated in her vehicle in the company of another officer, PC Larry Daniel, when a man alighted from a white Tiida and shots were heard.

PC Daniel drew his licenced firearm and returned fire, forcing the assailant to re-

enter the Tiida motorcar, which then sped off. The two officers were unharmed in the incident.

The vehicle was later found abandoned along Tank Road, Signal Hill, with bullet holes and evidence of blood stains on the right rear passenger floor mat.

Wilson was charged by W/Sgt. Alicia Piggott of the Scarborough CID, on September 4. The search continues for two other suspects who were believed to have been injured in the incident.
