Two men have been convicted of affray after an incident in Kingswood in which a man was shot.

In a trial lasting just under five weeks it was claimed Shaquille Thompson had been accused of robbery before being shot twice in the buttocks in an attack in broad daylight on Two Mile Hill Road.

A jury heard he was blamed for stealing two Rolex watches from jeweller Dominic Stewart, who was selling them on behalf of friends.

Bristol Crown Court was told that, following a pre-arranged meeting, three men attacked Mr Thompson on busy Hill Street around 2pm.

Mr Thompson was shot in the buttocks twice and stabbed in the thigh, the court was told.

Three men faced a charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent as well as affray on December 14 last year.

They were: Adelaja Brown, 31, of Chapel Road in Easton; Taurean Thompson, 31, of KIngswood and Andre Williams, 31, of no fixed address.

Taurean Thompson also faced a charge of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Tyree Sutherland, 31, of Chaplin Road in Bristol, faced charges of assisting an offender and possessing a firearm without authority.

Brown and Taurean Thompson were both convicted of affray.

The jury returned not guilty verdicts on all other charges.

Trial judge William Hart handed Thompson 18 months’ jail, equivalent to his time spent remanded in custody.

The judge deferred sentence on Brown until May next year.
