TWO ST MICHAEL MEN held by police in relation to a gun which dropped in the midst of alarmed mourners at a funeral last month, appeared in the District “A” Criminal Court 2 yesterday.

Akmal Terrill Haynes, 41, unemployed, of My Lord’s Hill, and Kerrie Shaquille Thompson, 19, also unemployed, of 14 Field Place, Bayville, were not required to plead to the April 20 charges of: possession of a firearm without a valid licence, stealing a firearm belonging to the Crown, and assaulting Ryan Selby on the same day.

These charges stem from the incident that was recorded on video at the Westbury Cemetery, and seen by thousands on social media.

The men, whose attorney was not present, were remanded by Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale to HMP Dodds until June 19.

Sergeant Janice Ifill prosecuted. (COASTLINE COMMUNICATION)
