Five of the six men accused of shooting at police said it was lawmen who opened fire on them on the night of May 20, 2018.
The sixth, Renako Kadeane Brathwaite, said he was nowhere near Kew Road or Promenade Road that night.

They each opted to give an unsworn statement from the dock.
Hinds told the court Richard Worrell and he had gone to the bread shop in the Orleans before returning to Deacons. (HLE)
