Victoria nightclub shooting case back in court

Woman appears in Victoria court via teleconference to hear bail hearing date rescheduled

One of two people charged in the wake of a drive-by shooting outside Club 9one9 in the Strathcona Hotel has had her next court date set.

Whitney Rae Furber, who remains in custody, appeared at a bail hearing via video conference on Monday in Victoria Law Courts. She faces charges of attempted murder, use of a prohibited firearm, aggravated assault and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, among others.

Her case was rescheduled for April 8 at 9:30 a.m.

The charges stem from an early morning incident Feb. 25 on Douglas Street in which club doorman Michael Mizerski was shot in the leg. He was released from hospital later that day.

Dennis Grant Fletcher also faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, use of a prohibited firearm and others in relation to the shooting. His case will be back in court on March 25.
