The policeman became fearful and fired shots in their direction
One of the men fell and died but the other escaped
Bulgin was later seen at the Kingston Public Hospital and identified as one of the two men from the gully
During cross-examination of the policeman, Foote asked that images of the crime scene be shown
The policeman agreed that based on the images, the gully was dark when the photos were taken
Foote, in making a no-case submission, said that in light of the evidence, it would have been impossible for the policeman to have seen the men and be able to identify them as he contended
Shelly Williams upheld the submissions and freed Bulgin
