Suspect in Vieux Fort shootings pleads guilty

The suspect in two recent shooting incidents in Vieux Fort has pleaded guilty to charges of discharging a firearm with intent to cause grievous harm.

Vernon Moncherry of Mon Repos  was previously been charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition.

He is scheduled to make an appearance in court next month for sentencing.

Police are reported to have conducted a search in a house that was occupied by Moncherry where they found a firearm, ammunition and a mask.

The search was conducted after  24 year old Tisha Collymoore of Bridge Street, Vieux Fort,was shot in the leg by a masked assailant  who had earlier demanded cash.

That incident occurred on February 18, 2017 at around midnight.

A few days earlier on Monday, February 13, 2017,  at around midnight, David Raymond alias ‘Pumpkin’ sustained a gunshot wound to the arm when one of two masked men who showed up at his home in Bruceville, Vieux Fort, opened fire in his direction.

The masked men fled after the shooting.

    He needs to be placed behind bars for a very long time. Freaking dangerous criminal…mask and gun. Shooting that woman for no reason. Lock him up. No more games of $3,000 fine.
