MONTREAL – Six witnesses have now taken the stand in the murder trial of Richard Bain, the man accused of killing one person and attempting to kill others at the party headquarters of the Parti-Québécois on September 4, 2012.

The PQ had just been elected to form a minority government.

Stagehand Jonathan Dubé told the court he thought the accused was holding an AK-47 the night his friend and co-worker Denis Blanchette was shot and killed.

Dubé, one of the victims Bain is accused of attempting to kill, says as he ran from the crime scene he realized later he had blood on his arm and face.

He drew a sketch of the scene for police officers that is being used in court.

Dubé’s testimony continues Monday afternoon when he is expected to be cross examined by defence attorney Alan Guttman.

Monday morning, another stagehand and an audio-visual technician also testified.

One of those witnesses, Benoit Gromko, also listed as a target in the attempted murder charges, told the fourteen member jury that he heard a detonation and a lot of smoke and saw Dave Courage on the ground. Courage was seriously injured that night from a gun shot wound.
