A teenager has been charged with the attempted murder of an off-duty policeman during a botched hold-up.
Latoriano Mackey, 18, is accused of shooting Constable Horace Albury Jr while trying to rob John Chea and Sons Number 2 on Wulff Road on October 4.
Prosecutors say Mackey conspired with an unnamed person to commit the armed robbery. He is also accused of possession of a 9mm pistol and five unfired rounds of 9mm ammunition.
Mackey didn’t have to enter a plea to charges when he appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
He was denied bail and remanded to prison until December 16 when he will receive a voluntary bill of indictment.
He did not have a lawyer.
