ONE of three men accused of attempted murder told a jury he lied to police because he was scared.
Carl Hughes, of Abbey Road, Fartown, admitted lying about his whereabouts during the shooting of Sheffield man Damian Munroe in Huddersfield on April 22, 2006.
Mr Munroe was hit in the head with a bullet as he sat in a Jeep at Cross Church Street in the early hours incident.
Hughes, 31, is charged alongside Bradley Okoro, 22, of New Hey Road, Oakes, and James Collier, 27, of Stoney Cross Street, Taylor Hill.
They all deny attempted murder, attempted grievous bodily harm with intent, violent disorder and possessing a firearm.
