    That's crazy - we will be there in a month. Tragic and sensless violence - I hope all those injured recover fully (physically and emotionally).

    I hope the perp, on the other hand rots in jail - or maybe this is a good time to bring shark feeding back to East End...

    KathyV, do you know who the employee was? We know most of them and I'm obviously concerned.

    I have a message for Mr. Solomon, but the board rules, quite rightly, prohibit me from providing them on the forum.

    Prayers for the young lady that she may recover, both physically and mentally.

    The accused Jaron Solomon was in court last Friday (July 28, 2017) and pled not guilty on an entirely unrelated matter - threatening to kill six police officers and resisting arrest among the highlights. He is facing charges along with his brother, who was apparently not involved at all with the dive shop assault. The article I read does not make it clear which brother is facing charges of smashing out the window of a police car sometime in the process of being arrested and taken in for booking during the February arrest that led to these charges.

    So Mr Solomon will have at least this one other trial before a trial on the dive shop assault.

    Today, May 28,2018 Jaron Solomon, the accused in this dive shop attack, pled guilty to a reduced charge of Assault GBH (Grevious Bodily Harm) in a last minute plea avoiding a trial on an attempted murder charge.

    From attempted murder to assault is quite a reduction in charges; I hope that he gets a stiff sentence!
