Man remanded for shooting daughter’s friend; previously jailed for wounding daughters
Peter Thompson, who was recently released from prison after serving 12 months for wounding his two daughters was on Friday remanded to prison yet again, this time for shooting at a woman.
Thompson, 55, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and was not required to enter a plea to the charge which alleged that on July 29, 2021, at Durban Street, Lodge, he discharged a loaded firearm at Cherie-Ann Wills, causing her to receive grievous bodily harm.
Thompson was remanded to prison until August 16.
According to reports, Wills and Thompson’s daughter Andrea Howard are friends. In 2019, Thompson was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment for wounding his two daughters with a knife.
Additionally, Howard is currently before the High Court for the division of a family property at Durban Street Lodge and Thompson is restrained from entering the property.
It is alleged that on the day in question, Wills, Howard and two other friends were sitting outside of the yard when Thompson came and discharged several rounds in their direction.
One of the bullets struck Wills to the upper right side of her back and is still lodged in her chest. Thompson was later arrested and charged for the offence.
