Morvant man granted bail after shooting in Carapo

Sayyed Ali, 29, who was charged for a total of five offences including wounding with intent, was granted bail in the Arima Magistrates Court this morning.

Ali, who hails from Coconut Drive, Morvant, was granted bail in the sum of $275,000 with surety on the condition that he stays 200 feet away from the victim, is not to be found in the Carapo community, and is to reside at Coconut Drive, Morvant.

The 29-year old suspect was also charged with possession of firearm to endanger life and possession of ammunition to endanger life, when he stood before Magistrate Aden Stroude, in the Arima First Magistrates’ Court.

The 25-year old Carapo victim who was shot last week Sunday told police that he was with a friend at Unity Lane, Carapo, when he observed a silver Nissan March motor vehicle approaching. A masked gunman in the vehicle shot at him three times. He was hit in his right hand and the vehicle sped off.

The victim was taken to the Arima Health Facility for medical treatment and subsequently discharged.

Investigations were launched into the incident which resulted in Ali being arrested and subsequently charged by Cpl Ramdhanie of the Northern Division in connection with the shooting.

The matter was postponed to Thursday 16th February, 2020.
