A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday after he was arraigned on a firearm related offence.

Everette Strachan, 33, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyanne Ferguson-Pratt facing a charge of possession of firearm with intent to endanger life.

It is alleged that he was in possession of a handgun on Sunday, November 27, and shot at Kenton Moss, putting his life in danger.

Strachan was not allowed to enter a plea to the charge and returns to court on December 6 for a determination on whether the case will proceed as a summary trial or preliminary inquiry.

If the latter is held, sufficient evidence would have to be presented for the case to proceed in the Supreme Court.

Strachan was remanded to the Department of Correctional Services in the interim.

However, he has the right to apply for bail to the Supreme Court.

Attorney Ian Cargill held brief for Nathan Smith who is representing Strachan against the allegation.
