Man charged for Sunday’s murder not the shooter, court hears

Man charged for Sunday’s murder not the shooter, court hears

Hasani Frett, the man charged in connection to Sunday morning’s killing of a man in Road Town, was not the shooter in the fatal incident.
This is according to allegations outlined in the Magistrate’s Court where Frett appeared today (Wednesday, February 15) on charges of murder, inflicting grievous bodily harm, and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

According to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Tiffany Scatliffe-Esprit, Frett and an associate had just left a nightclub in Road Town and boarded their vehicle just before daybreak on Sunday, February 12.

Reports are that they were parked in the vicinity of multiple surveillance cameras. It is alleged that while the two men were seated in their vehicle, three masked bikers rode up and surrounded the car.

The court heard that Frett’s associate, who was in the passenger’s seat of the vehicle, pulled a gun and fired shots at the bikers — fatally wounding one. The other two bikers as well as the shooter fled thereafter but reports are that an unsuspecting woman was also shot in the leg.

The court was also told that when police arrived at the scene, the deceased gunshot victim was found masked with two loaded guns in his possession.

His identity is still unknown to the police, the court heard.

Back in court, where Magistrate Kadeen Palmer presided, a bail application was not made for Frett nor was he made to answer to the charges as the offences for which he is charged are indictable and can only be heard before a High Court.

He was therefore ordered remanded until his next court date on March 30 when a process will begin to commit his matter to the High Court.

Frett was represented by defence attorney E Leroy Jones.
