Jeffrey McDougal’s Attempted Murder Charge Dropped

Twenty-eight-year-old Jeffrey McDougal was freed of an attempted murder charge today.  When he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser, Taylor’s Alley resident Brandon Allen told the court that he has had a change of heart and didn’t want further court action into the December 2015 shooting. Allen also told the court and McDougal that he has forgiven him. Allen had reported to police that on December thirteenth of last year, he was walking at the corner of Water Lane and East Canal when someone approached him from behind and shot him in the buttocks. Two days later, police arrested and charged McDougal with use of deadly means of harm upon Allen. At the time, Allen was denied bail and remanded to prison. He was later granted Supreme Court bail and was out on bail up until today when he was freed of the charge.
