Moses Babb gets Attempted Murder, Firearm and Deadly Means of Harm Charges

Twenty-one year old  Moses Babb, who was charged with attempted murder and two other offences, was committed to stand trial in the April session of the Supreme Court today by Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford after a preliminary inquiry was held. Babb was also charged with use of deadly means of harm and keeping a firearm without a gun license. The charges arose from an incident that occurred on September 22, 2017 in the area of Buttonwood Bay. According to reports, the victim, 22 year old Aaron King, was at a party and he was standing outside on the street with two friends when he was approached by his assailant who was riding a bicycle. King was shot twice in his chest and once in his right shoulder. Babb, the alleged gunman, was shot twice in his stomach by one of the party goers who had his licensed firearm. As a result, Babb was apprehended by the police and the firearm he allegedly used, a 9 millimeter pistol, was recovered from the scene by the police. Babb was not represented by any attorney at the preliminary inquiry.
