Final arguments in shooting of German tourist

A Calgary judge will rule in October whether a youth accused of shooting a German tourist in the head on a highway west of Calgary last summer is guilty. The teen from the Stoney Nakoda First Nation, who cannot be identified because he was 16 at the time, is on trial for charges for aggravated assault and recklessly discharging a firearm in the commission of an offence. The Crown says if you consider all of the evidence presented it has completely proven its case against the accused. Defence lawyer Balfour Der said none of the chief Crown witnesses had any credibility and his client should go free. (The Canadian Press)
