The Prosecution’s submissions were upheld and the trio was remanded to prison until July 7.The Police had issued a wanted bulletin on Friday for 20-year-old Shemar Wilson, also known as “Abdue”, of Lot 43 North Sophia, Greater Georgetown and of Lot 51 West La Penitence, Georgetown, for questioning.The live grenade was hurled at the luxury vehicle belonging to Lall on June 4, during the first night of the wake to pay last respects to deceased Assistant Editor Dale Andrews.Persons who were at the wake recalled hearing a strange sound but assumed that it was the sound of glass shattering. However, when a thorough check was made, the grenade was found lying next to the right tyre of Lall’s black Lexus vehicle.The Police were summoned and the area was immediately cordoned off, while bomb experts deactivated the device. They noted that it was a miracle the grenade did not explode.After a review of footage from surveillance cameras, it was revealed that the grenade was thrown from a grey motor car. That vehicle was later found abandoned in the vicinity of Norton Street and Mandela Avenue. It had reportedly hit a woman before slamming into a utility pole in the area.Prompt investigation led to the discovery of the car and the arrest of six persons who were later joined by another seven as investigations continue.last_img read more
