BANGOR – The Thomas Ferguson trial continued on Thursday morning. The court heard the testimony from a neighbor by the name of Wallace Hallett, who says he heard gunshots coming from next door and saw two shadow figures swiftly leaving the Center Street apartment in Bangor.
Hallett lived in the apartment building behind 201 Center Street when the shooting had occurred on November 27th, 2015.
They also heard the testimony of law enforcement officers that were present the night of the murder. One of them includes Kimberly Donnell who says she was in the back of the ambulance with Barry Jenkins, a survivor of the shooting.
According to Donnell, Jenkins says “Tom” Ferguson, 38, is the man who shot him.
Robert Kennedy, 38, was also killed in the incident.
Ferguson is charged with elevated aggravated assault and murder in a November 2015 shooting.
Prosecutors say that he and Robert Hansley went to 201 Center Street and opened fire that night.
The court also heard the testimony of Jenkin’s former girlfriend, Tera Choquette, 30, who was smoking a cigarette outside the apartment the night of the shooting. She says that Ferguson and Hansley rushed past her into the apartment at 3:30 a.m.
The two suspects are being tried separately and Ferguson’s fate will be considered by a judge after he waived his right to a jury trial.
The trial will continue on Friday.
