Lawyers are set to argue Tuesday whether Brandon Schell is guilty of extortion, firing a prohibited weapon and aggravated assault.
Prosecutor Don Mann completed his case Monday.
The Crown alleges Schell was a drug enforcer who threatened crack addicts gathered in a downtown apartment Nov. 5 to purchase drugs only from him. When a friend stood up to protest, the prosecution said Schell fired a bullet through his shoulder.
While at least six people were in the room that night, only one — Robert Lessard, who was sleeping in a bedroom and awakened by the shot — identified Schell with the gun in his hands. Another, witness, however, said Lessard did not wake until hours after the shooting.
Defence lawyer Sheldon Tate did not call any evidence.
“My client instructs me he does not want to give any evidence,” Tate told B.C. Supreme Court justice Dev Dley.
Both Tate and Mann are expected to present final arguments.
