WINNIPEG – DNA testing is becoming the focus at week two of the murder trial for a man accused of shooting people at a local Salisbury House.
28-year-old Devin Hall is accused of first-degree murder and attempted murder in connection to the shootings in September 2012.
A Forensic scientist from the RCMP has told the jury about taking samples from a white shirt and a pair of gloves.
They were found by police near the crime scene: the Sals restaurant at Pembina and Stafford.
Prosecutors say the gloves and shirt were worn by the shooter and DNA found will match with Hall. A DNA expert will testify about the results of the testing Wednesday.
23-year-old Jeffrey Lau, a local drug dealer, was killed in the shootings. A friend with him was also shot but survived. He told court the killing was “a hit.”
The trial will last until the end of the month.
Below are images of various exhibits seized as part of the crown’s case against Hall. They include the shirt and gloves found by police along with a gun found by police and shell casings recovered from the crime scene.
