Dunbar, a 27-year-old labourer, appeared at the Serious Offences Court on Friday, May 8, but was not allowed to plead to the charge that was laid indictably.

The matter was adjourned to September 1, 2015 for Preliminary Inquiry hearing. He was remanded.

On May 1, Douglas became this country’s fifth recorded homicide after being shot at Campden Park.

According to a police press release, Douglas was the doorman at an event dubbed ‘Water, Soca and Alcohol,’ held at the Campden Park playing field, when the incident took place.

The report stated that preliminary investigations show that Douglas was at the door when he was approached by a hooded male, who shot him. The assailant reportedly relieved Douglas of a purse containing gate money and fled the scene.

Douglas died on the spot.
