‘Shots’ handed life sentence for killing court tout during home invasion

L-R: Terrence Pitt and Darrell Breedy

Terrence Pitt has been slapped with a life sentence for the unlawful killing of court tout Darrell Breedy in 2020.

High Court Judge Jo-Ann Barlow handed down the sentence. Pitt, called ‘Shots’ and ‘Sonna Boy,’ was initially indicted for murder but pleaded to the lesser count of manslaughter. He admitted that on October 5, 2019, at Humming Bird Street, Festival City, he unlawfully killed Breedy during the course of a robbery at the man’s home.

The confessed killer was mandated by the court to attend behaviour and skills training sessions tailored to his rehabilitative needs. But before he is eligible for parole, he must serve 20 years. For the period he spent on remand, he received full credit, as well as for his early guilty plea.

Attorney-at-law Kiswana Jefford represented the 30-year-old man, while Praneta Seeraj presented the prosecution’s case.

Reports are that Breedy, 53, who worked as a tout outside the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, was shot to the abdomen after two men broke into his Lot 2037 Hummingbird Street, Festival City, North Ruimveldt home.

The bandits, who gained entry through the man’s window, escaped with a television and $11,000 in cash. The man was later discovered by his daughter lying face down in the kitchen in a pool of blood.
