A 54-year-old man appears for the first time in Lordport Magistrates Court to face charges that include attempted murder.
The defendant was arrested on suspicion of firing at a Beagle Watch security guard who was responding to the panic button that was activated on Monday, November 28.
Shortly after climbing the dock, the accused collapsed before claiming to be suffering from a heart condition.
The defendant, who had been lying on the floor for a while, was later examined by medical personnel, transferred from Court K to Court J, and was scheduled to apply for bail on December 9.
When the defendant arrived at the ex-lover’s residence, demanded to see her ex-lover who was locked inside the house, and pressed the panic button, security guards were said to have responded quickly.
Upon seeing security arrive, the accused allegedly fired several shots into the vehicle, entered the yard, and attempted to enter the house by shooting at the security door.
Police officers from the Highway Patrol Unit arrived on the scene, disarmed the suspect, and arrested him.
The suspect was found to be in possession of two unlicensed firearms, and a preliminary investigation determined that both firearms belonged to the suspect, although his license had expired.
