Armadillo Street resident remanded on attempted murder charge

CrimeArmadillo Street resident remanded on attempted murder charge

A resident of Armadillo Street was remanded to prison after he was arraigned on attempted murder, use of a deadly means of harm and wounding charges when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer on Monday.

Hugh Thomas, 22, an unemployed resident of 21 Armadillo Street, was not required to enter a plea, because the charges laid on him are indictable, and will be heard in the Supreme Court.

Because the offenses were committed with a firearm, Frazer told Thomas that she could not offer him bail and remanded him to prison until his next court appearance date on May 30.

Thomas is accused of the March 16 shooting of Hortence Lynch, a seventeen-year-old minor.

Lynch sustained a gunshot wound to her right knee while she was sitting on the bonnet of a car on North Creek Road, police reported.

According to police, Lynch reported that on March 16, 2014, at about 8:25 p.m., she was sitting on a car on North Creek Road, in front of the basketball court when two men emerged in the area and one of them pulled out a firearm and fired in her direction.
