NASSAU-A man accused of shooting at a senior policeman as he fled a murder scene appeared in court Tuesday, June 23.

Police have charged Lorenzo Bain, 24, of St. James Road, with the murder of Deano “Twin” Gordon and the attempted murder of Superintendent Warren Johnson.

The charges stem from an April 7 shooting at Hampton Street.

Prosecutors allege that Bain and others arrived in a stolen black Toyota Passo and unleashed a barrage of gunfire, killing Gordon. Superintendent Johnson, who was in the area, heard the gunshots and got into a shootout with the killers. However, Johnson did not get hit.

Police later found the getaway car abandoned at Carib Road, off Mackey Street.

Ian Cargill represented Bain when he made his initial court appearance before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

The magistrate did not require Bain to enter pleas to the charges and denied bail.

However, Bain can apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

He returns to court on October 20. At that time, prosecutors will fast-track the case to the Supreme Court.
