The North East based ChronicleLive reported two brothers admitting affray and criminal damage in Newcastle Crown Court after opening fire with an air pistol shooting at the windows of a Gateshead estate agents office and one of their cars in revenge for an eviction notice being delivered only three hours earlier. The brothers did not pay the first two months rent in their new home after failing to secure benefits.
Liam O’Brien, prosecuting, said: “Fortunately there were no staff inside at the time. The witness heard a loud bang being made and saw the defendants’ car with the passenger side window open. It then sped away.”
Joshua Mass, 24, was jailed for 12 months to be released after five months on remand and Brandon Mass, 19, was sentenced to nine months suspended for 18 months with a three month electronically monitored curfew for three months between 9pm and 7am.
The judge said the sentences took into account the brothers’ troubled upbringing with Joshua suffering from ADHD. The sentences also reflected their foolish and very immature actions, including the terror that the estate agent’s staff felt in the day’s afterwards before the perpetrator’s arrest.
Police called to the scene found seven holes in the windows and the brothers then drove on and targeted a lease car bearing the company name parked two miles from the agency office.
