Two local area men facing attempted murder charges in relation to separate shooting incidents in St. John's last September and November are scheduled to have bail hearings on Monday at provincial court in St. John’s.
Stephen Chris Shaw, 31, from C.B.S. and Jason Earl Marsh, 35, from St. John’s are each facing attempted murder charges against two men, as well as a bunch of other weapons-related charges.
Shaw and Marsh appeared in provincial court in St. John’s today and their cases were set over to Monday morning.
The two accused were located Friday in a vehicle in the Howley Estates area of St. John’s and arrested by the RNC.
One shooting took place on Sept. 9, 2013, at a house on Boyle Street in the west end of St. John’s. The 21-year-old male victim in that case was treated at hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
On Nov. 11, a 30-year-old man was shot and wounded on Williams Heights in the St. John’s neighbourhood of Kilbride.
Shaw faces five charges: two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a gun, and possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public.
Marsh faces 14 charges: two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a gun, two counts of unlawful possession of a gun, two counts of unlawfully discharging a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm for a purpose dangerous to the public, two counts of unlawfully pointing a firearm at a person, and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.
Insp. Barry Constantine of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said Friday the arrests were the result of an 11-month investigation by police. The investigation remains active.
