Not-guilty plea to GBH

A CLARENDON Vale man shot a teenager in the stomach shortly after someone smashed in his front window with a fire extinguisher, the Supreme Court has heard.

Ronnie Edward Jackson, 40, has pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm on October 22, last year.

A Hobart jury today heard Mr Jackson's neighbours were arrested the day before and people in the area blamed him for dobbing them in.

A crowd gathered in the street yelled at Mr Jackson and rocks were thrown on his roof.

Crown Prosecutor Patrick Dixon said about 10.30pm a car was pushed onto the nature strip in front of his house and set alight.

About 1.45am his front window was smashed and a fire extinguisher was discharged into his house.

The court was told Mr Jackson took a single-barrelled 12-gauge shotgun, loaded it and went outside.

The weapon discharged and a 15-year-old boy nearby was hit, causing serious abdominal wounds including a lacerated liver and colon.

Mr Jackson told police he had stumbled when the boy threw a fire extinguisher at him and the gun had gone off accidentally.

"I don't think he would have been shot if he hadn't thrown the fire extinguisher at my leg," he told police.

The trial, before Justice Stephen Estcourt, is continuing.
