The man accused of shooting minibus driver Alvin Lorrimer on the Linden bus park was on Wednesday slapped with a murder charge when he appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Twenty-three-year-old Terry Cromwell of King Edward Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, was not required to plea to the indictable charge.
The Prosecution is contending that on March 22 at the Linden bus park, in Georgetown, he murdered 53-year-old Lorrimer of Kara Kara, Linden.
According to reports, Lorrimer was standing on the roadway at the Linden Bus Park, Hadfield Street, Georgetown, around 21:00hrs, when two men rode up on a CG motorcycle, one of whom discharged rounds at him before riding away.
Lorrimer was hit to his chest and left foot, and was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he subsequently succumbed to his injuries.
Cromwell was arrested after an eyewitness positively identified him as being one of the men on the motorcycle on the night in question. It is unclear whether the rider of the bike, who was held for assisting Cromwell in escaping, is still in custody and whether he would also face charges.
The accused is expected to make his next court appearance on April 29.
