The following isn’t online yet, but has been sent over to me in relation to the Hughes shooting:
Fatal shooting Hughes, 20-year-old charged
ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations Team have this evening (May 12) arrested a 20-year-old man in relation to the fatal shooting in Hughes that occurred in the early hours of Monday morning (May 10).
The 20-year-old man was conveyed to the ACT Watch house by police where he was charged with the murder in relation to the Whittle Street shooting.
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow (May 13). Police will oppose bail.
Police continue to investigate other avenues of the incident and ask that if anyone has further information to assist the investigation they should contact Police on 131 444, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.
Well done AFP, now let’s see how the rest of the criminal justice system goes.
UPDATE: The Canberra Times informs us that the accused is one Cameron Ashcroft.
He’s also been accused of harming three police officers in the watch house.
Further Update: The ABC now informs us that young Cameron has also been “accused of conspiring with others to intentionally inflict grievous bodily harm between May 7 and May 10.
I can feel a Mully coming on.
ANOTHER UPDATE: The Canberra Times’ Mark Graham has been bravely harassing young women at the court to support Mr Ashcroft. Worth checking out the photo.
