Man refused bail over shooting incident

Man refused bail over shooting incident

A local man charged with eight drugs and firearms offences has been refused bail in an Orange Local Court hearing yesterday.

According to police, Mitchell Norman Barnes shot at the feet of a Springside farmer during an altercation.

Dirt and rocks hit the farmer from the shotgun blast.

Mr Barnes’┬ádefence team argued that his life would be in grave danger should the judge refuse bail.

However, the fact that police have been unable to locate a weapon, led to Magistrate Lucas deeming him too dangerous to be set free in the community.
