No proof Mais shot with Glock

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: IN RE­SPONSE to Orville Tay­lor’s col­umn ‘Why the X6 case crashed’ (Sun­day Gleaner, Oc­to­ber 30, 2016), there is no ev­i­dence that the fa­tal bul­let was fired from a Glock, be­cause there is no gun bar­rel to match the mark­ings of the ri­fling and spi­ral groove that would be found on the bul­let.

We know the ab­solved ac­cused, Pa­trick Pow­ell, owns a Glock, but for all we know, the bul­let could have come from a Beretta, Sig or HK, and the bar­rel of Glocks are in­ter­change­able.

It would be in­ter­est­ing to note if, af­ter the po­lice re­quested the Firearm Li­cens­ing Author­ity to re­voke the per­mit, Pow­ell’s gun con­tin­ued to be li­censed for that length of time or the per­mit ex­pires or re­voked, in which case he would be in pos­ses­sion of an il­le­gal firearm.
