Thirty-three year old Anthony Crawford, an unemployed of Antelope Street Extension, was charged with attempted murder when he appeared today before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza. Crawford was also charged with dangerous harm, use of deadly means of harm and possession of three point six grams of cannabis. He pled guilty to possession and he was sentenced to one month imprisonment. The sentence is to run concurrently to another sentence of one month, which is in default of payment of a fine of one hundred and five dollars which was levied on him in 2015. The case involving attempted murder and the other charges was adjourned until August 11. These charges arose from an incident which occurred on June 20 in which 40 year old Anthony Leslie, also known as “Columbian”, was shot once in the left side of his chest. The incident occurred at Leslie’s residence, on Iguana Street Extension. The police say they believe that another man was involved in the shooting but he has not been arrested yet.
