The Golden Grove man accused of shooting two Carlisle Bay Resort workers last week made his first court appearance on Monday, April 17, after being arrested and charged by the Police on Saturday, April 15, and was remanded to His Majesty’s Prison.
Frederick Henry appeared before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards in the District B All Saints Magistrates Court after being charged with attempted murder; shooting with intent to murder; and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Magistrate Emanuel-Edwards cannot, by law, grant bail for certain serious offences, including those of which Henry is accused, and therefore had to place him on remand.
Henry can, however, make an application before a High Court judge if he wishes to obtain bail.
The 24-year-old man reportedly was involved in the recent double shooting at Carlisle Bay Resort in Old Road.
It is alleged that Henry went to the property at around 11:30 p.m. last Tuesday, April 11, and shot and injured Dean Anthony, 33, and 32-year-old Morissa Henry.
In addition to being shot and seriously injured, Morissa was stabbed repeatedly, reports say, and both she and Anthony remain hospitalized in serious condition at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.
According to reports, the two Carlisle Bay employees were walking to the hotel’s gate after completing their shift, when Frederick Henry, who is also an employee of the resort, launched his attack.
The accused is due back before the court on July 12 for committal proceedings.
Commissioner of Police Atlee Rodney has thanked residents who came forward and assisted the Police with their investigations, allowing officers to make a quick arrest in the matter.
Meanwhile, Rodney is also appealing to residents with information about persons who have illegal firearms and ammunition in their possession, and urging them to share that information by calling the anonymous Crimestoppers Tips Hotline at 800-8477.
