Defense says Manchester shooting suspect ID flawed
At a probable cause hearing Thursday, Russell called the 20-year-old victim a liar, saying Jackson is a drug dealer who gave police four or five different accounts of the shooting at 145 Orange St. and provided a description of the shooter that doesn't match his client, a Dorchester, Mass., resident.
But if Lyons should find probable cause, Russell said, he pleaded for a bail reduction from $300,000 cash/surety to $5,000, saying Scott's mother can only afford $500 for a bail bondsman.
Detective Michael Lavallee said Jackson told police that when Scott entered the Orange Street apartment the morning of the shooting, he accused Jackson of texting him messages threatening him and his two sons, whose names and birth dates are tattooed on Scott's arm.
Russell said there were discrepancies in Jackson's description of the shooting, saying a friend of Jackson's who was in the apartment that morning denied seeing the shooter, saying she went into a bathroom after hearing someone knock at the door, fearing it was police. When she later heard the sound of a gun being cocked, she left the bathroom through a window.
Mucci responded: "It was very reliable because it led to his arrest." He said the information led police to a Cushing Avenue apartment where Scott and Scott's girlfriend, who acknowledged driving the vehicle described by Jackson, were found.
Harpster said the fact that Scott showed up at the Orange Street apartment at 6:20 a.m. with a gun showed premeditation.
Harpster asked that Scott's $300,000 cash/surety bail be maintained and that a hearing be held on the source of any funds offered for bail.
