Blaine Simmons Charged With Attempted Murder

April 25, 2013

19-year-old Blaine Simmons appeared in Magistrates Court this morning [Apr 25] where he was charged with attempted murder in relation to the shooting in Sandys in March of this year.

Simmons was charged with attempting to murder Lo’Torean Durrant and using a firearm to commit an indictable offense.

Video of the police statement on the night of the shooting:

At around 10pm on March 19th Durrant, 22, was shot and injured in the Beacon Hill Road, Scott’s Hill Road Sandys parish area. He was transported to hospital, where he was originally listed in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit. In Court today, they said he sustained wounds to his rib cage.

As the charges can only be heard in the Supreme Court, Simmons was not required to enter a plea. Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded the defendant into custody.

    Folks, if Blaine is found guilty by the Queen's Court of Bermuda he will face a long stretch and his constant companion will be a form of death - loss of freedom; years of lonely days and nights; a yearning/longing to be with his parents and siblings - to touch them, see their faces and hear voices; and the worst experience he'd be subject to and suffer is the torment of his conscience. In reality, your encouragement for him to keep his head high will be insufficient for him to maintain and sustain a healthy state of mind.

    What the Black people of this island really need to do is figure out a very effective way to END the war going on between our Black males. This problem is OURS and WE need to resolve it. WE have to save OURSELVES.

    Let me hear some brilliant solutions. Please don't tell me to hold my head up high. What does that statement truly mean?

  16. Blaine please don't say you live up the west or 42. Anyone from those areas all hang round people in those areas would be fine & frame. Get your son a dam good lawyer & be very careful who you pick some of them are evil people. I see a young man that was going up for a murder is out walking round a free man. Oh I forgot not enough evidence. Didn't I say that guy was going to walk. We all no who he is. RIP Le'shore
