TTC Shooting Trial

The young man's fate was decided yesterday by a jury of 12 and he was found NOT Guilty of attempted murder however he was found guilty of aggravated assault using a firearm. Because it was difficult to prove he intended to shoot the bus drive he was found not guilty on the bigger charge.

He shot the bus driver in the face as he supposedly tried to assist his friend from getting beaten down by a gang of people. Malcolm Chalmers, 23 has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and use of a firearm.

I can’t see this boy coming out innocent, his own girlfriend testified that he did admit to her about the shooting along with seeing the weapon. She never mentioned the confession until Toronto Police interrogated her for more than four hours on Jan. 21, 2008, two days after she had split up with Chalmers, her boyfriend of four years.

The shooting left the bus driver legally blind.

A jury now deciding whether Malcolm Chalmers blinded a TTC bus driver never heard that he was convicted as an accomplice in the shooting of another man who insulted his pal.
The gun also has a past. This is the same gun that was used to kill Kempton Howard and wound three others in Toronto. This boy is a clearly a modern day menace to society.
