‘Chucky’ Brown Trial | Witness says he saw when ‘Chucky’ shot victim dead

The prosecution's first witness in the trial for police Constable Collis 'Chucky' Brown testified yesterday that he saw when Brown, who he said was wearing a mask, shot the deceased Robert 'Gutty' Dawkins on the Palmer's Cross main road in Clarendon on January 10, 2009.

Brown is being tried for the murders of Dawkins, Dwayne Douglas and Andrew Fearon in incidents which happened in 2009 and 2012.

Prosecutor Caroline Hay, who is leading the three-member team, questioned the witness, who told the court that he, the deceased and another friend were on a section of the main road when a white station wagon drove passed them, twice raising their suspicions.

The trio went in pursuit of the vehicle where they found it parked along the roadway.

In an attempt to see who was in the vehicle, the witness said Dawkins rode his bicycle down the road, stopping several feet away from the car. The car subsequently moved towards Dawkins, almost touching his bicycle, when expletives were heard and a shot fired, sending him sprinting down the road.

The witness said the back left door of the vehicle popped open and a man wielding a gun stepped out, as Dawkins continued down the road.

TAM OVER HIS FOREHEAD

"The person turned up the road facing (their friend), then the person looked back down the road. I see him with the gun in his right hand. Him did have a tam over him forehead, wah him draw over him face," the witness said, adding that the man looked at him twice before going after Dawkins, who by this time had stopped down the road.

He testified that he saw when the man approached Dawkins, firing shots, hitting him.

The witness said he saw the man on three occasions following the incident - first in the community, then at the May Pen Police Station and finally in Sandy Bay just weeks following the incident.

Hay questioned the witness, which led to the identification of the accused who was sitting in the dock.

"The man you saw in Sandy Bay, do you see him here today?" asked Hay.

"Yes, miss," the witness answered, pointing at Brown.
