Teen’s charges upgraded after second shooting victim dies


Tribune Court Reporter


AFTER the victim of a shooting in Key West Street last month succumbed later to his injuries, an 18-year-old accused in the case has had his charges upgraded to murder.

Antwan Adderley stood before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt accused of murder yesterday over an incident on February 14 at about 2.30pm.

It is alleged that Adderley, with another male, armed with a high-powered rifle and a handgun, got out of a vehicle on Key West Street and opened fire on Ingramson Toussaint as he sat outside in the yard.

At the time, Toussaint was taken to hospital for gunshot injuries, but he subsequently died at a later date.

Adderley was previously arraigned last month for the murder of Gordon McKenzie who was also shot and killed during this same incident.

As this is an indictable offence, Adderley was not required to enter a plea. The magistrate did not have the jurisdiction to grant bail, however the accused can apply for it in the Supreme Court. He was remanded to jail until then.

He is expected to be presented with a Voluntary Bill of Indictment transferring his case to the Supreme Court on July 27.
