GUNNED DOWN: Jeremiah shot dead trial hears

Devon Anglin shot dead four year old Jeremiah Barnes at point-blank range, narrowly missing intended target, father Andrew Barnes, as he drove away from a West Bay petrol station, prosecutors told the Grand Court on Friday.

Opening a three-week murder trial before Justice Cooke, prosecutors spun a graphic and grisly tale of the February shooting death, showing CCTV footage of the 15 February, 8:00 pm murder at the Hell Road Esso station.

Detailing the five-count indictment against Mr Anglin, prosecutor Andrew Radcliffe, QC, told Mr Justice Cooke that charges of murder, attempted murder, assault, possession of an imitation firearm and threatening violence stemmed from two incidents involving the defendant and Mr Barnes, culminating in the accidental shooting of his son.

The trial is set down for three weeks.
